Native American Art - - NATIVE BASKETRY -

Panamint and Che­me­huevi are Great Basin groups, from the Colorado River up through Death Val­ley, who upped their weav­ing skills as min­ing and the rail­road brought in a new group of buy­ers. They raised bas­ketry to a fine art form, uti­liz­ing wil­low and devil’s claw over a three rod wil­low foun­da­tion, later adding jun­cus reed for orange color, and the Panamint dyed flicker quills. Both groups hit their stride in the 1930s, but the Stock Mar­ket crash and World War II took its toll on col­lect­ing art. Pic­tured are from front to back two Panamint and four Chemhuevi.
