A statement in the museum is certainly accurate when I visited the Eastern California Museum, Independence, CA...the heart of the museum's collection is the basketry which is one of the largest exhibits of Owens Valley Paiute-Shoshone and Death Valley Panamint-Shoshone basketry in the Nation.
From cradleboards, to bows and arrows, then highlighted by the awesome Paiute beadwork, this accessible museum in the Eastern Sierras was a delightful surprise. The exhibit includes more than 400 baskets and nearly 100 other, related artifacts of the Native Americans who occupied this region in by-gone days. Since the basketry is displayed in enclosed glass cases, you can view each handcrafted utilitarian piece from multiple angles.
