With her basket-weaving skills, Alicia Nelson wanted to express the Navajo Emergence with Ceremonial Baskets. Nine perfectly woven and graduated baskets accomplished her desire in a most attractive manner. Ceremonial baskets speak of the Navajo awakening of consciousness, the upward moving way, family, and continuation of spirit. Alicia’s nine basket set is such a lovely way of saying something so memorable and meaningful to her and her people.

About the artist:

Navajo Basket Artist Alicia Nelson

Young and vulnerable to other's opinions, Alicia Nelson has nonetheless learned to trust her own instincts, and this has served her well as she has gone from being an apprentice basket weaver to an artist in her own right. Alicia trained under her mother-in-law, the famous Mary Holiday Black, recipient of the National Endowments 1995 Arts Heritage Award and fellowship. Alicia is one of only an estimated two dozen Navajo weavers who incorporate pictorial images into their baskets.

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?

Navajo Ceremonial Baskets
The Navajo wedding basket also reflects many values of traditional life and so often contains all six sacred mountains, including Huerfano and Gobernador Knob, though the size of the basket may determine the numher of mountains in the design. The center spot in the basket represents the beginning of this world, where the Navajo people emerged from a reed? More about this legend
