Vintage Apache Tus
Apache water basket (tus). 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 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 tus has a 7" opening on the rim.
