Materials
juncus, deer grass, sumac and palm

Commentary
Rattlesnake designs often decorate Cahullia baskets made between 1896 and 1920. Because bad luck and illness seemed to befall basketmakes who used the eesign, it became unpopular. In this basket, rattlesnakes are combined with eagles and arrowhead motifs.
