Please look closely at the pictures as are an important part of our description. The Tohono O'odham (AKA Papago) Indians are located in the Arizona desert and are famous for finely woven baskets. Thousands of years ago, the Hohokam, settled along the Salt, Gila, and Santa Cruz Rivers. These were the ancestors of the Tohono Oodham, making them one of the oldest Native American Indian Tribes of the Southwest. Baskets are produced by the Tohono O'odham from various materials such as willow, yucca and horse hair.
Miniature versions of these baskets are highly sought after by collectors. Basket making is a long tradition of the Tohono O'odham and each one is unique to the maker.
