Native American Hopi Made Sifter Basket with Turtle

Women on all three mesas make plaited sifter baskets. These baskets are made by plaiting yucca fibers, either natural or dyes, to achieve many designs. Many of the Hopi wickers, coils, and sifters are used for social or ceremonial purposes. This one features a turtle in the center. Turtle represents longevity, and many people believe that we all live atop the back of a turtle.
