About Tohono O'odham
Tohono O'odham basket makers are among the finest in Native America. All materials are natural, as are all the colors - no dyes are ever used. Preparing the materials and forming the baskets is a very labor-intensive process. The basketry created by this tribe is best described by Terry De Wald in his book The Papago Indians and Their Basketry. Mr. De Wald has been a trader specializing in their basketry for more than 25 years.
