juncus, deer grass and sumac
The Cahuilla basketmaker Ramona, who worked in the late 1880s and early 1900s, was immortalized in Helen Hunt Jackson's 1884 novel of the same name. She did not begin this basket using the traditional sumac as the wrapping material, but she did use it fo the background of the design.
