Product Information

B1332 - Ute Water Jar
Ute water jar. A water jar (tus) would be used to go to the river for water. It would be brought home and emptied into a larger tus. These baskets were commonly woven and used by the Apaches, Navajos and Paiutes. After weaving the basket it was covered with pinion pitch making it a watertight container. This lower portion of this jar is lightly covered with pine pitch and has braided horse hair handles. This tus measures 14" tall and 11" wide.
