Tlingit

Tlingit people are indigenous to the northwestern coast of the United States and western coast of Canada or southeastern corner of Alaska.

Tlingit basketry is all based on twined weaving and has developed a few different variations of it. The most common of the styles was "Close-together-work" for its watertight weave making it a very utilitarian style.
