Virginia Yazzie is a kind and gentle soul from Fruitland, New Mexico. She is in her middle-60s and seems comfortable with her years and weaving ability. She comes from a long line of Navajo rug weavers. Virginia's Chief pattern-inspired rug is nicely made, has symmetry, balance, and, most importantly, great eye appeal. In the classic period of Navajo rug weaving, everyone who was anyone wanted a Navajo Chief Blanket to express his or her status. With this sweet little sampler, Virginia has revived that period and hopefully that desire. Crisply made rugs like this in these warm, rich colors do not come around every day. It is always exciting when a weaver of Virginia’s caliber comes to the trading post.

After the medicine woman told the people about the prayersticks she told them that there was a place in the underworld where two rivers crossed. It was called ni tqin'kae tsosi, fine fiber cotton (Indian hemp). There were two persons who brought the seed of that plant, they were spiders. 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
