The Nuu-chah-nulth nation is one of the most prolific in their creation of decorative baskets. Made up of more than a dozen different native tribes and bands, the people formerly known as Nootka made their home in the region along the west coast of Vancouver Island and on the northwest extremity of the Olympic Peninsula. In recent times the Tribal Council on Vancouver Island, British Columbia adopted the name Nuu-chah-nulth as the unifying designation for all of the different tribes which shared this single culture.

Archaeologists have traced the culture of the Nuu-chah-nuth as far back as 3000 BC.

The origin of the lidded trinket basket in various sizes and decorated with colourful designs of whalers, whales, birds, and fish can be traced to the influx of western civilisation along the Pacific coast. The master weavers of the Nuu-chah-nulth produce some of the finest and most delicately woven baskets from split sea grasses. These are widely collected.
