About Gene Quintana
Datsolalee Miniatures Collection


The Makah Tribe lives near Cape Flattery at the Northwestern tip of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. With no tradition of ceramic crafts, they used basketry for needs such as cooking, gathering and holding water.

The Makah often used bear grass twined over cedar bark warp using a kind of rare wrapped twining method. However as materials became more available, they began to replace bear grass with raffia.
