Songs from the Loom: A Navajo Girl Learns to Weave (We Are Still Here)

Reviewer Tracy Robert writes, "Photographer and writer Monty Roessel…documented his ten year old daughter, Jaclyn, as her grandmother taught her to weave. The fifth grader learned about the practical aspects of weaving; like shearing sheep, carding and spinning wool, natural dyes, and weaving techniques. Nali Ruth (Grandmother) also taught Jaclyn about important Diné (Navajo) stories related to weaving and the significance of each tool." (We Are Still Here: Native Americans Today)
