Pomo

The Pomo people are indigenous to California and lived along the northern coast of California, their territory stretching inland toward Clear Lake.

Pomo basketry is often admired for the great craftsmanship. The most prominent styles are plaiting, coiling and twining and they often used materials like willow shoots, sedge roots, swamp canes, saguaro cactuses, rye grass, the bark of redbud and more.
