Woven Single-Rod Washoe Bowl
Heritage Junction, Newhall

A coiled single-rod Washoe bowl from the Lake Tahoe region, circa 1900-1925. Willow (light color) and bracken fern (dark color).

The basket is sourced to Sinforosa Fustero, the last Tataviam speaker. She was born July 17, 1834, at San Fernando Mission, to Crisanta (of Tejon), who was Kitanemuk, and Narciso (of Piru), who was Tataviam. Sinforosa spoke both languages. As an elderly woman she lived in Newhall. She died in 1915.

This basket and two others were donated to the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society by Irene (Ruiz) McKibben, who said her mother obtained them from Sinforosa. Evidently Sinforosa collected baskets, as did many other weavers.

The three baskets were this one, which Sinforosa did not make; a small Pima (Akimel O'odham) bowl from Arizona, which Sinforosa did not make; and a peculiar bottleneck basket that Sinforosa might have made.
