Description: 
The Chitimacha excel in basket making and river cane from the banks of the Mississippi River is the favoured medium. Natural dyes from black walnut husks and the blood root plant provide brown and burnt red surfaces. The baskets are woven with a twining technique. Some weavers are able to create flowing, curvilinear lines in their basketwork.
