Yei American Indian Weaving : Elsie Bia : Churro 1624 : 37" x 60"

Product Description

Yei American Indian Textile,  here she goes again!  Elsie is so talented there is no design she will not tackle!  Gorgeous colors in this Yei - the blue faces of the males are striking. 

One theme that is central to the Navajo way of life is the attainment and maintenance of harmony and beauty.  In the Navajo creation story, there exists numerous persona identified as Holy People or Yei be Chei who exemplifies the concepts of harmony and beauty. Yet these same people also have the potential to create their dynamic opposites such as chaos and ugliness. During Navajo ceremonies which focus on restoring harmony and beauty, the power of the Holy people is invoked.  The Yei Be Chei dancers are the human impersonators of Holy People who perform specific dances and rituals as directed by the Medicine Man for the desired result.

In this textile the leader of the dance, Yeibichai or the Talking
God, wears a white mask with a fan of twelve eagle
feathers attached at the top of the mask.  Around the
neck of the dancer will be a ruff of spruce.  An Abert squirrel pelt
would be held in his right hand.

The Male Yeis wear masks which are blue in the front
and white in the back with two eagle feathers attached
at the top.  A gourd is fitted into the front of the
mask so that the dancer can breathe.  Each dancer
wears a ruff of spruce around his neck, and a
colorful, short kilt with a concha belt and a kit-fox
pelt hanging down his back.   Each dancer has
moccasins and wool garters which hold up the leggings.  The rest of
the body, arms and legs are covered in white clay.
Gourd rattles are held in the right hands of the
