The southern-most Wakashan group, the Makah, reside in the north-west portion of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. They are a part of the Nuu Chal Nulth Nation, a consolidated group of tribes living on the west coast of Vancouver Island south of the Brooks Peninsula.

Their style of basketry is the wrapped-twining technique, in which two web strands are used. An uncoloured strand passes the warp at the back forming a lattice work and a coloured strand wraps around the inside weft as well as the warp. This technique can produce small, delicate, very fine work.many of the decorative themes are drawn from the ocean: whales, boats, anchors etc. The Makah are virtually the last Whalers on the coast.

Woven spruce-root hats were also made and often decorated for ceremonial purposes.
