From Kicking Rock Monster came Turtle and Alligator, mean children from a destructive and devilish father. The Hero Twins arrived to put down the monstrous threesome, but mercifully allowed the offspring an opportunity to clean up their act or face the consequences. Kicking Rock Monster chose to do battle and paid with his life. Alligator chose to consider the possibilities and exited the Southwest for the swamps of the Southeast. Turtle turned over a new leaf and became medicinally beneficial to mankind. Peggy Rock Black loves this cultural story and frequently chooses to weave it into her baskets. She believes it helps keep her healthy and focused on the positive aspects of life.

Navajo Basket Artist Peggy Black

One of the famous 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.

Navajo Basketry

Basketry is a woman's industry, which is also pursued by the nadle (he changes), hermaphrodites, or men skilled in the arts and industries of both men and women. Basketry, however, is not classified with textile fabrics (yistl'o), but with sewing (nalkhad). It is of interest also that, while the basket is in progress, the sewer is untouched and avoided by the members of her family?
