Helena Begay of Sweetwater, Arizona, has woven this tiny Tree of Life treasure. Helena generally weaves much larger rugs that take a great deal more time to finish. This little beauty came off what she calls her kitchen table loom. This is a second, smaller frame that Helena always has strung to keep herself busy. She can’t stand to sit still. The design stands for upward movement and personal growth along with communication with deity and ancestors. "The song of small birds remind us that our gods are all around us,” says Helena.

Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is one of the most unique and interesting of Navajo myths and legends. It is an interpretation of where the people came from, their beliefs in the progression and movement of life, connections with their surroundings and the involvement of their deities. It is a metaphor for who they are and the life they lead. At the base of the corn plant there is a symbol for the emergence or center of all things.

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
