Sonja Black is the daughter of Peggy and Eddie Black and the granddaughter of Mary Holiday Black. Sonja’s heritage is strong when it come to the art of Navajo basketry, and through that association her skills are well honed. Sonja has woven this impressive version of a ceremonial basket encircled by deer. To the People, deer symbolize sustenance and protection of one’s family along with speed, agility, and a shrewd, crafty nature. Hand-tanned and specially prepared buckskins were an essential element in the creation myth and are essential to medicine men in specific ceremonies.


About the artist:

Navajo Basket Weaver Sonya Black

Daughter of Peggy Black - Basketweaver: One of the Douglas Mesa basket weavers, there wasn't much question about what Peggy Rock Black would choose to pursue in life. She was born into a family of weavers before she married into an equally talented family of weavers. Willow baskets were her predestined avocation. Peggy developed her inherent skills well, and has found her niche by becoming one of the few weavers who can successfully incorporate pictorial images into her baskets.
