Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
This pattern is often found woven into baskets and other items that Cherokee people created to help with their life.
The traditional Cherokee homelands in what is now eastern the United States is rich in forests in which Hickory, White oak, cane, and honeysuckle were used as the main materials in weaving. Other plant materials were used to create various colors. Cherokee people have created baskets since prehistoric times and continue to create unique styles and patterns to the present day.
