This is a basket that was created by the Native Americans
in this area, this basket is on display at Bolton Hall in Tujunga.
Generally these baskets would be used to transport berries nuts
and acorns from the hills back to the village. They also made
baskets that were water tight so they could store and transport
Other crafts made by the native people
in this area include boats that were sea worthy. Unlike most
tribes in America, these people would construct boats out of
individual boards rather than just carving them from a tree trunk.
This is more difficult to do but produces better water craft.
Tongva people also made crafts out of stone. These crafts include
cooking vessels, carving and grinding stones, stone figures of
wildlife and people, arrowheads, and spear points.
