The majority of Indian baskets in Yosemite were created by Paiutes, followed by the Washoes and Yokut Native American women. Yosemite-Mono Lake Paiute Indian women started the trend of covering their baskets with bead work. They would either do traditional basket maker designs, birds, animals or scenes.

Here is a beautiful modern beaded basket done by Paiute - Shoshone Rebecca Eagle-Lambert. A colorful detailed Yosemite Valley inspired basket;

Beading willow baskets was started by Yosemite-Mono Lake Paiutes who sold the baskets to white tourists in the Park. The art form later was picked up by Washoes further up north.
