Seventy-six baskets show off the skill and sophistication of Southern Luiseño and Soboba basket weavers and beauty of their art. Farmer comments upon each basket’s material composition; its pattern motif, whether subtle or stunningly intricate; and its probable use, such as for cooking, winnowing chaff from seeds, or playing dice games. A thorough introduction to common basketry techniques deepens our appreciation of the baskets as art objects and provides insight into the enduring culture of the Southern Luiseño people.
