Basket making is one of the most ancient of human crafts. There is a Native American legend that tells how the First Peoples learned to make baskets by watching birds build their nests. Basketry is a local art form; using materials and methods based on the local materials, plants and natural dyes found in an area. In the northeast, many Woodland Indians created coiled baskets from sweet grass. Sometimes sweet grass was used only as decorative adornment, shaped in varied shapes and sizes.
