Thinking about Siletz basketry

A recent Oregonian article got me thinking about Siletz & Siletz basketry.[1] I poked around the Internet briefly and came across some websites selling historic baskets.

The Confederated Tribes of Siletz website has a few images of basket making.

Tribal member Bud Lane makes baskets and is featured in an Indian Country Today article and the video below.[2]
