Miniature horse hair basket with images of snakes, cactus, and deer by Adeline Molina (Tohono O'odham)
The Tohono O'odham, which means "Desert People", were formerly known as the Papago by the Spanish and are descendants of the Hohokam culture, which flourished between 200- 1450 AD in what is now southern and central Arizona. They are known for their horsehair baskets and for their yucca and beargrass baskets. The technique they use is coiling.
The Tohono O'odham originated the use of horsehair in making miniature baskets sometime in the 1960's.
