$125.00 Sold Out
This beautiful basket was made by local Chippewa artists of the Cree family and features red willow harvested from the Turtle Mountains of North Dakota. They are some of the few remaining willow basket makers in our region. Mikinaak means turtle in Anishinaabemowin, the Chippewa language, and this basket is expertly formed into the shape of a turtle.
It features deep red rich willow harvested from where the northern plains meet the woodlands. The basket was made using ancient traditional techniques and all natural materials. A beautiful and exceptional piece. The medium basket measures 8"x6"x9" and would make a great statement piece in your home or cabin. This item ships from the US.
