Northeastern Indian baskets, for example, are traditionally made from pounded ash splints or braided sweetgrass. Southeastern Indians (Cherokee) traditionally make baskets from bundled pine needles or rivercane wicker. Southwestern Indians (Hopi and Navajo) make baskets from tightly coiled sumac or willow, and Northwest Coast Indians typically weave with cedar bark, swamp grass, and spruce root. Northern Indians (Chippewa and Inuit) craft birchbark baskets, and even whale baleen baskets.
