The Tohono O'odham (AKA Papago) Indians are located in the Arizona desert and are famous for finely woven baskets. Thousands of years ago, the Hohokam, settled along the Salt, Gila, and Santa Cruz Rivers. These were the ancestors of the Tohono O’odham, making them one of the oldest Native American Indian Tribes of the Southwest. Baskets are produced by the Tohono O'odham from various materials such as willow, yucca and horse hair. Miniature versions of these baskets are highly sought after by collectors. Basket making is a long tradition of the Tohono O'odham and each one is unique to the maker. Basket pictured is what you receive. Miniature horse hair baskets are wonderful gifts or for own for your collection (and they are less expensive than buying a whole horse)!
