“the foundation rods (tcu’lüme, n; sa’pu, c) of coiled baskets were gathered when the plants were in their prime, and were stored in bundles or coils for use during the remainder of the year. for certain coiled baskets, rods ten feet long were used. some baskets were coiled clockwise, others contra-clockwise.”
