juncus and deer grass
This basket is a modified se-whal-lal, oval in shape and untraditional in design motifs. It was made by a Chemehuevi basket-maket. The Chemeheuvi were driven from their homelands on the Colorado River by the Mojave in the late 1800s. Eventually, most of them drifted back to their homes where a reservation was established for them; a few, however, remianed in the Coachella valley, on Cahuilla reservations, where their basketmakers adopted many aspects of Cahuilla basketry technique.
