Brief DescriptionIndian baskets and artistry at Tahoe City museum
TypeAttraction
CategoryMuseum
DescriptionThe Marion Steinbach Indian Basket Museum is home to more than 900 Native baskets from more than 85 tribes west of the Mississippi. The remarkable artistry, in addition to the ingenious utility, of these baskets is timeless and awe-inspiring for both basket enthusiasts and casual observers. How did ancient people use baskets to hold and transport water? To cook hot food? To trap their dinners? The answers lie in these beautiful baskets. There are also basket hats, including one estimated to be more than 1500 years old! In addition to working baskets, there are also novelty baskets on display, from breathlessly wonderful beaded baskets to impossibly tiny baskets: they're all here at the Steinbach Indian Basket Museum!
