Rectangular split basket composed of natural stakes of river cane interwoven with natural, blue, and salmon-colored dyed splits for contrast. Basket has an overhead, wrapped handle, laced lashing along the rim, and a closed rectangular base. The splits and stakes measure from 0.125 to 0.188 inches in width.
Basket was perhaps made by Choctaw Indians in Oklahoma. It is associated with a minister at the Goodland Presbyterian Indian School in Hugo, Oklahoma.
