Alicia Nelson is a traditionalist at heart, immersed in the culture of her people. She often weaves baskets for her friends and neighbors to use in traditional ceremonies. Then, every once in a while, she weaves one for the trading post and attaches an arrowhead at its center. Arrowheads are believed to be created by Grandfather Horned Toad, who chips away the flakes with the force of his breath. Because they are gifted by Chei, arrowheads are believed to provide much protection.


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.
