Transportation ➔ Birch Bark Mukuk

Birch bark basket; one end open and one end tied; cracked on bottom; extremely fragile; seems to be more a sample piece for programming purposes.;Object found with other items being used for educational programming. Some items were known to have previous accession numbers, but the numbers have either been obliterated through use or tags have fallen off making tracking and documentation difficult. It was decided to re-number the objects at this time and provide basic cataloging information to facilitate identification of the object with the accession number in the future.
