About the artist:

Luana Tso Luana Tso has had a dream for many years now, and it is woven into each one of her Navajo rugs. She has three sons, and for each she dreams of a college education. This bright hope for her children's future keeps her at her loom from eight to fourteen hours a day, weaving traditional patterns, all the while trusting that her efforts will develop a new tradition for her family: higher education.

Yei

Every creature, every aspect of nature has its holy people . . . . even the stinkbug. Sometimes you can see them, if only for an instant. They are represented, some of them, by colors: the blue sky, the evening dusk, the night these are holy people and one prays to them. There are iron people, crystal people, then the other rocks "and such people." There are dawn people, twilight people, air, thunder, and cloud people. One does not talk about such things in nature when they and their holy people are present.

It was called ni tqin'kae tsosi, fine fiber cotton (Indian hemp). There were two persons who brought the seed of that plant, they were spiders. They said that the people were to use the plant instead of skins for their clothing. So this seed was planted in the earth? More about this legend
