Containers are made from a single sheet of bark that are folded and at times are strengthened by further binding or being stitched at the sides. They were either made quickly on the spot for a single use and then discarded, or might be kept and reused over time. This one appears somewhat robust and was used to scoop water from a stream or a waterhole.

Physical Description
