Baskets woven of native sumac are used in virtually all traditional Navajo healing rites, generally referred to as ceremonials. These weavings are most commonly associated with weddings and are an integral part of the celebration. No one creates more perfect wedding baskets than Betty Rock Johnson and her talented children, Joann and Chris. This basket by Chris Johnson is remarkably tightly woven and precisely executed. It is one of the best examples of Navajo ceremonial baskets you will find.

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?
