Weavers


This picture shows Navajo Weavers. You can see that they are making an intricate blanket. It also looks like the little girl is holding a lamb. A thing that strikes me about this picture is how finely adorned the people are . . . all wearing nice clothes, jewelry and Concho Belts. Perhaps the Navajo adjusted into an artisan lifestyle that worked well for them.

  1. It is a beautiful picture, back when people dressed more nicely.
    That animal might be a goat.

  2. The heavy silver belts and other items were every day wear years ago.

  4. I've really enjoyed your posts. I did some teaching at Yavapai College in Prescott, AZ and had many Navajo, Hop, and Zuni students. I spent much time on the reservations and in the four corners area. The people and their areas have always intrigued me. Keep up the good work.
