Navajo Rug Weaver Allison Billy

Allison Billy started weaving Navajo rugs at the age of nine.  Unlike other young weavers who are taken under the wing of a mother, an aunt or a grandmother, Allison started weaving in secret, hiding his small loom whenever family drew near.  As a young boy, the prevailing Navajo traditions and taboos stated a male should not weave.  Watching closely as his female relatives were weaving, however, Allison was compelled to learn this beautiful craft so he snatched opportunities at his secret loom whenever possible.
