Pacific Northwest Basket Weaving
The style and method of northwestern baskets differ with each tribe.

The Makah tribe makes baskets that depict sea life and the Haida baskets are woven upside down! While the Twana use cattails to make their baskets, the Tlingit use spruce.
In the Tlingit culture, baskets are used for spiritual, ceremonial, and everyday life.
Shamans used baskets as specialized hats.
Average people used large baskets at home and carried small baskets around. While some cylindrical baskets were cut in half and used as cradles, others were used to hold food and clothing
The waterproof baskets were cut in half and used as pots. Smaller baskets were used as cups, bowls, and spoon holders.

The designs on native baskets are geometric. Decorations are made by weaving in colored grass over the main material. Designs utilize simple geometric shapes that vary in color, shape, and design. The designs all have to be symmetrical.
Most baskets make up a Cartesian coordinate system. Most baskets are made up of spruce root which is the most common material. Grasses and ferns are dyed to make the baskets
