"Those that play with fish..."
The Chemehuevi were a nomadic tribe and resided in the mountains and canyons of the Mojave Desert and along the Colorado River shoreline; currently they live in the Chemehuevi Valley.

The Chemehuevi were skilled basket makers and occasionally made pottery, often making twined and coiled baskets. Their coiled baskets were very distinctive because they were produced almost exclusively with split, peeled willow and black devil's claw on a two or three willow rod foundation that coils clockwise. The designs were occasionally painted on instead of weaving them into the baskets.
