Thoxélets, the Basket woman – Cedar Weaving Lesson Patterns and Measurement

Tth’oxélets, otherwise known as the Basket Woman or Wild woman , is a frigtening being that has been told of in Coast Salish stories for many generations. She was known to kidnap young children who did not listen or who did not return home after dark, bringing them back to her home up in the mountains to eat.


Tth’oxélets, has a large basket woven out of cedar that she used to carry the children that she captured. In this activity, students will design their own cedar baskets or a mat while investigating patterns and measurement.
