This exhibit is presented by OneAZ Credit Union. With more than 35,000 specimens, the ASM collection includes not only baskets, but sandals, mats, cradleboards, cordage, and other technologically similar items representative of every indigenous basket-making culture in North America, dating from 8,000 years ago to the present. It is the largest and most comprehensive collection of its kind in the world.
