Lidded black ash basket by "Red Arrow Family"

With brown pigment throughout, lined with sweetgrass

Lid fits inside of basket rather than outside. Lid has some handle. Lined with sweetgrass. Signed on the bottom with "Red Arrown Family 1991" Because Red Arrow highway runs through Hartford, Michigan--one of the village sites for some Pokagons--it's possible this basket was made by a Potawatomi family in that area.
