Evelyn Rock Cly is the queen of the Navajo modified ceremonial basket makers. She rarely weaves pictorial designs, preferring geometric elements derived from the original ceremonial pattern. Evelyn will visualize a design, gather, and prepare the natural plant fibers, dye them, and begin to weave. It is astounding to see just how many variations Evelyn can create from linear and step patterns.

Evelyn's baskets are known for their extremely tight weave and open geometric designs. Perhaps the best indicator of how valuable her baskets are is that different traders have her baskets in their private collections.

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?

The center spot in the basket represents the beginning of this world, where the Navajo people emerged from a reed? More about this legend
