The uses

The Tlingit did not use or understand the making of pottery and they did not have metal to use, so they would use spruce-root to make the baskets. The baskets were used for cooking kettles and for storing meat and berries. They were also used to gather things like berries, roots, and shellfish. Sometimes the baskets were woven so tight that people could even use then as cups like in the picture or even store liquids in the baskets.
