Description

Native American women artists wove baskets with intricate, beautiful designs that are held sacred. Amazingly, these artists didn’t use patterns or predetermined designs; instead they used their intuition to create each basket. This charming booklet, with illustrations, explains the meanings of some Cahuilla basket designs, with the words in Cahuilla and English. The targeted audience is children, but this booklet is cherished by people of all ages.
