Coiled Basket, Tataviam
Heritage Junction, Newhall

Coiled basket attributed to Sinforosa Fustero, a Tataviam Indian who lived in Newhall as an elderly woman and probably died in 1912. She was the mother of Juan José Fustero, the last full-blooded Tataviam.

It has not been verified whether this basket was made by Sinforosa Fustero or collected by her. In any case it was donated to the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society by Irene (Ruiz) McKibben.
