Navajo Rug Weaving

Dennis has become fascinated with Navajo Rugs. We took a trip to see Lindsay and
Ethan's family and on the way enjoyed stopping at several trading posts and
pawn shops to look at Native American handicrafts. This is one of the rug rooms.

I've was admirng their baskets and love this one.
They are made with sumac.

Dennis liked this one very much, but we did not buy it.

This is a Yei rug we bought at Shonto Trading Post. Al Grier is
the trader and he still runs his trading post pretty
much like in the old days. There used to be close to 50 trading posts and
now there are only about 8 that have not turned more commercial

2010 Desert Stars

Whitney and Alyse spent a week with us and enjoyed classes at Tuachan. They went every day for 1 hour each of training in dancing, singing and acting . 3 hours each day total.
At the end of the week they were in the production and had solo parts in their own special area in which they had been selected. Whitney had both a singing solo and a speaking solo. Alyse had a solo as a dancer. All the parts were rather small since almost all performers were given a chance to "shine." They said they loved it and would like to do it again!
