Navajo medicine people still make use of the ceremonial basket. Approach a Hatahle or Medicine Woman,for a healing chant of one kind or the other, and he/she will instruct you to go out and find baskets to get things started. This basket, circa 1950s, has seen its share of ceremonial use and shows a slight amount of wear and tear. The weaver, unknown, was a very talented artist. The weave is small and tight, and with age, the basket has acquired a lovely golden patina.
