Foreword by Peter Iverson, Author & Professor.
Catalog has 42 examples of Navajo saddle blankets dating from the 1870s to 1940s. All blankets were on exhibit at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg Arizona.
There are many tales and stories regarding the rich Navajo history in America. None may be more intriguing and exciting than that of the infamous Spider Woman. A deity that holds a special place in the Navajo culture, it is believed that she is the one that taught the Navajo to weave.
It’s said that the first loom was made from sky and earth cords, and that the weave itself was made from sunlight, lightning, crystals and white shells.
The truth, however, is the Pueblo people taught the Navajo how to create Native American hand-woven blankets. In fact, Navajo artists were influenced in part by the Spanish who had introduced cotton to the Pueblo long before 1650.
