 The Hupa group lived along the lower portion of the Trinity River. The Hupa had frequent contact and close relations with their neighbors the Yurok and Karuk whom lived along the lower Klamath River.

Most northwestern tribes seemed to use similar styles of plain, 2-strand twining in their basketry. The Yurok designs were usually simple patterns of bars or dots. The Hupa used California hazel, pine root, squaw grass, and maiden hair fern in their basketry; the Karuk mainly used warp rods, willow shoots, brown conifer root, and myrtle.
