Native Designs


Lines of domes, leaves, or curls linked together in a line or chain. By the late 1800's these trails were not just used as borders, but as the main figure on baskets. Trails may record the records kept by Native families during the 1800's.

"The trail suggests the path one travels through life. Along that trail, one encountered other people and certainly many plants" (Tantequidgeon & Fawcett).
