Traditional Navajo baskets were sometimes produced by neighboring Ute weavers who were not subject to the strict restrictions and taboos Navajo weavers were. They traded or sold these ceremonial baskets to the trading post, which in turn traded or sold them to the Navajo for ceremonial use. Such was the case with this basket that came to us from a New Mexico estate. Unfortunately, the name of the artist was not retained, but the style and technique of the weave is certainly Ute in character.
