Oos´eev (Yucca)

NPS

Yucca Kanabensis

Food, fuel, and fiber came from the yucca. Paiute people pounded the leaves to obtain fiber for rope, nets, baskets, jugs, mats, and sandals. Shampoo came from the roots. The fruit was roasted and then eaten, or made into a ball and dried for winter use. The stalks made good kindling.
