Betty Rock Johnson has had a long-lived and endearing relationship with the hard- headed goat. She sees them as did her ancestors, one of the bedrock symbols of Navajo society. They represent a food source along with wealth and prosperity. When Betty was out herding her own flock of sheep and goats, she saw a petroglyph that inspired her imagination. Upon the face of a protected red-rock cliff, pecked into the desert varnish was a line of what she saw as goats. So inspired by the visage was she, that Betty went home and wove a basket for the occasion.


About the artist:

Betty Rock Johnson Born and raised on the Eastern edge of Monument Valley, Betty Rock Johnson is a true child of the desert. Raised traditionally in the old way of the Dine ("the people"). She has the look and character of an Elder. The sun, wind, and rain are responsible for the unique character of both the land formations and the furrowed brow and leathery features of its residents. Betty is a product of the elements and shows Mother Earth's handiwork in her eyes and countenance. A basket weaver from a very young age Betty Johnson has perfected her art and creates unique interpretations of her native culture and beliefs. Betty has also produced a number of offspring, she has trained in basket weaving to make it a family affair - an effort the family both enjoys a great deal and relies on to supplement their income.
