Footnotes

  • Craig Bates' notes indicate: "This is the basket which Charlie exhibited at the 1929 Indian Field Days in Yosemite Valley. It is very evenly and neatly made, with 18 stitches and 5 1/2 coils per inch. The basket is in perfect condition; I could only find one bracken fern root stitch missing. It is one of perhaps only ten large baskets of this size ever produced in the Yosemite-Mono Lake Region."
