Contains printed field study note cards (14 x 24 cm) with a list of the names of S.A. Barrett's consultants who are Native
American basket weavers. Affixed to each card is a close-up photograph snippet of a basket detail. A few of the cards contain
hand drawn details instead of photographs. Manuscript entries in Native American languages for each detail are written in
next to the name of the weaver who was consulted. Each card is numbered in sequence with some subgroup series but it is unclear
what the numbering schema represents. Most of the Native American basket weaver consultants listed were from the Pomo tribe
and include prominent California Indian basket weavers such as Joseppa Dick, Liza Coons, Mollie Bucknell, Topsy, and Lydia
