This type of basket, frequently called "Tulare bottleneck," despite the name, was not made by the Tulare subtribe, but by other subtribes of Yokuts as well as the Monache. During hte snake ceremony, the shaman would put his hand inside the basket to show his power over the snake within it. Several kinds of snakes ight be used, including rattlesnakes.
