Sturdy and lightweight baskets were the most important type of container for the Yavapai. The baskets became a trade specialty and they were traded with other native groups and sold through Anglo traders for the tourist market. This coiled basket is made of devil’s claw and willow stitched around a three-rod foundation—a typical Yavapai construction. The Western Apache and the Yavapai tribes live together on several Arizona reservations and their baskets are very similar in form, material, and design. This basket’s pictorial design includes humans and deer.
