Thinking about Siletz basketry
A recent Oregonian article got me thinking about Siletz & Siletz basketry. 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.
