Navajo Basketry

Basketry is a woman's industry, which is also pursued by the nadle (he changes), hermaphrodites, or men skilled in the arts and industries of both men and women. Basketry, however, is not classified with textile fabrics (yistl'o), but with sewing (nalkhad). It is of interest also that, while the basket is in progress, the sewer is untouched and avoided by the members of her family?

More about this legend

Pitchpot
In addition to the basket just described, the water bottle and carrying basket are the only other objects of wickerwork made by the Navaho. Tqoshje is probably a contraction of tqo, water, and yishje, it is closed with gum, from the fact that the wicker bottle or jar is covered with a layer of gum or pitch. These bottles are made of, or sewed with sumac, willow, or other pliable twigs, in the shape of a large vase with a rounded bottom, a globular body, and a long, narrow neck with a flaring rim?
