Description

South coast style double-weave basketry hat. Hat is cone-shaped, with a fine tight weave, and undecorated. The top of the hat is flat, with four larger crossed pieces at centre. Inside, there is a woven band to fit on a head.

Narrative

The hat is said to have been passed down to the donor from his grandmother, Agnes Burns Wilson. Agnes also had a collection of Nuu-chah-nulth basketry and engraved coin metal bracelets. It is uncertain whether the hat had also been owned by Agnes' mother, Ameekiah (the donor's grandmother). Ameekiah was of chiefly lineage in Cape Mudge, and was said to have died at a young age, in 1896.
