Link to this object

Originally known as the S'Puyalupubsh, the Puyallup Tribe is part of the Salish speaking people of the Pacific Northwest. Living along the shores of Puget Sound, their basket-making abilities are well-respected and tout a great variety of types and construction techniques. The Salish made baskets for cooking, storage, and sale to non-Native collectors. This example combines both geometric and human forms.
