Birchbark makak

Birchbark makak with a braided basswood handle made by Margaret Hill of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Indians no later than 2009. The makak’s rim is woven into a vertical zig-zag pattern with blue fibers. Directly beneath the blue fibers is a zig-zag border cut out of a darker color birchbark. The makak’s lid has the same vertical woven pattern around its edge. A circular piece of birchbark with a zig-zag edge decorates the center; a birchbark handle attaches to the top.
