Master Navajo textile artist, Lorraine Yazzie Black has stitched-out a most marvelous and interesting basket.  Lorraine has given her basket the Navajo name of “Nihinanit’a’l’ Ceh-yehs-bes” which means "Our Chief Braided Hair.”  Lorraine wove her basket in an unusual oval shape depicting said chief with those famous plaits donated by Lorraine’s old horse Otis. A multitude of eagle feathers shows that the chief is “Big Medicine” and the bone-like breastplate offers protection from a frontal assault.  Lorraine bordered her basket in a rich golden color portraying corn pollen and sunshine for extra might and majesty.

Inspired by dreams, Lorraine Black's skills have literally elevated basket weaving to new dimensions. Lorraine Black's infectious laugh belies the serious magic her hands conjure up when weaving a basket. Unprecedented in her ideas, Lorraine's baskets are innovative and beautiful. Many of them make good use of texture through over-stitching and the addition of objects such as flint arrowheads or horsehair.
