Rogans are birch bark baskets made by the Attikameks in Quebec, Canada. The baskets were traditionally used by women collecting berries in the forest and for storing food. They are made from birch bark that has been tied together with spruce roots. Most rogans have smoked moose hide straps. Usually, the rogans are decorated with designs of flowers and animals that have been scraped into the bark. Some large containers are used as clothes hampers. Each rogan is unique.
