The Hopi weave three types of baskets:
Hopi coiled basket or poota, is a style which is made only in the villages on Second Mesa. It is woven of galleta grass/sühü and sewn with yucca/ (Yucca angustisima) called mooho in Hopi.
Willow wicker baskets are known as yungyapu in Hopi. A shallow wicker basket or plaque is called a yungyapngölökpu. It is woven of sumac (rhus trilobata), called suuvi in Hopi and rabbit brush (chrysothamnus), called siváapi.
A Hopi yucca sifter - called tutsaya in the Hopi language - is woven from the leaves of the yucca angustissima or narrow-leaf yucca, called mootsoki in Hopi. It is the only style woven on all three mesas.
Baskets remain an important part of Hopi life and the Hopi themselves are the biggest customers for Hopi baskets
