The stamped and painted designs on splint basketry are origional to the Southern New England Indians. According to Scholar Frank G. Speck, the techneque  spread from southern New England to the Iroquois. Many art books fail to note this Artistic expression of such tribes as the Mohegans, Pequots, Niantics, Narragansetts, and the Scatticook.

Author Dawn C. Dove examines these designs, along with her own illustrations of these designs in this educational booklet.
