Description


The Panamint, or the Koso, numbered only two or three hundred and lived in California's Death Valley through the early history of the state. Panamint Shoshone Basketry is the product of years of Slater's research on an art largely ignored in the fields of art history and cultural studies. Before the creation of this book, the Panamint people and their art form have only a scattered page or paragraph allotted to them in literature. Here, Eva Slater fills that gap, exploring a people who have survived in the harsh conditions of California's Death Valley and showcasing their significant art form that celebrates California's northern desert. Illustrated with photographs taken over the past one hundred and fifty years, this work cultivates a respect for Panamint basketry and what it reflects about the culture.
