Yei Navajo Weaving : Sandra Chischilly : 3286

This lovely Yei piece was woven by Sandra Chischilly of the Lukachukai area. Sandra is known for her beautiful Yei weavings. 

Yei weavings depict dancers from healing ceremonies.  In this piece we see the rainbow yei guarding the dancers on three sides. The dancers are female as indicated by the square heads.  Each dancer holds streamers of feathers, and is wearing turquoise necklaces and belts. There are eagle feathers at their feet that serve as added protection. The stalk of corn is significant as corn is life to the Navajo. This piece is filled with color and life.
