Ye'kuana Baskets

 

"There is the one (great spirit) who created all of the baskets, and the baskets began to walk, and they entered the water after eating many Indians. They are the cayman alligators-you've only got to look at their skins to see that. An Indian doctor saw this spirit creating the first basket, and he managed to escape in time to avoid being eaten. It was a Yekuana.

That's why our baskets are better made than anyone else's." - Taken from the book "To Weave and Sing," written by David M. Guss.
