We personally have this book in softcover, but this hardcover is much more detailed and elaborate. Early Navajo weaving was made into clothing in the form of blankets worn around the shoulders. Later, the Native Americans began to wear manufactured blankets, and weaving began to die out.

However, the trading posts realized the commercial value of the fine work, and the Navajos began to weave saddle blankets and rugs to sell. The early blankets were designed with stripes, edge to edge. The weaving made to sell became heavier so that it could be used for rugs. With this change came changes in design: new geometric shapes and borders. Over the past two hundred years, the Navajo have acquired skills through experimentation and handed them down through the generations; some designs have become very complex.

There are now, in general, four categories of Navajo rugs: those that use natural fleece colors- white, black, some brown, and gray which is made by carding white and black fibers together ; those that use bright commercial dyes in many colors; those that use natal dyes secured by gathering and boiling plants, berries, and roots found on the reservation, creating mostly soft pastel shads of brown, green, yellow and pink; and those that combine some of these elements in Yei designs, which are derived from designs used in sand painting ceremonies.

Different areas of the reservation have become famous for distinct styles and designs. But all weave basically in the ancient manner. Although some spun wool is now purchased commercially, generally sheep must be raised and the wool sheared, carded, spun, dyed, and rolled into balls.

The loom is usually set up outdoors with the vertical warp strung between heavy logs suspended from trees or a wooden frame. The rug is woven by passing the weft over and under the warp threads and beating it down securely with a wooden comb. Heddles attached to every other thread open a shed to pass the weft through. A rug may take many weeks or months to weave, depending on its size. Warp - The threads stretched lengthwise on the loom. Tabby Weave- This is your basic weave.

Over 1, under 1.

Does not matter if you start over or under. The bubble in this diagram demonstrates how to keep the selvages straight. Basket weave--over 2, under 2. Use a double strand of weft. Vertical bars--tabby weave with two colors. Use two 6" needles. Dovetail--to change color within the shot.

Use two needles. Others, however, disagree with such conclusions, saying that only the weaver can make such a statement. Most Navajos will not explain another weaver's rug because it is too personal and individual; the meaning belongs to the textile. So this is a tantalizing show -- with designs that invite interpretation of weavings from the 's through the 's. It opens with a ''Chief Blanket,'' worn over the shoulders for warmth and status.

When it's wrapped around the body, half diamonds on each side meet for a striking effect. There is also an ''Eye Dazzler Blanket'' in a hot yellow, red and black geometric design, and the ''Cornstalk Pictorial Rug'' representing a break with a tradition of abstraction. While we can never see the blankets as the Navajo, we can feel the sensibility of an individual artist and the spirit of a people in each blanket.
