Calendar / Woven Women – a Discussion with Navajo Weavers
Thursday March 29, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Moderated by Jennifer Garey—guest curator of WEAVING A PATH – Navajo Women and the Feminine Ethos—and Mingei Textile Manager, Sarah Winston, join us for a special talk with two generations of Navajo weavers exploring the history and importance of this art form. Fourth generation Navajo weaver Melissa Cody will be joined by her mother and fellow weaver, Lola Cody. The discussion will consider issues such as the oppressive relationship between the Diné and the trading posts, as well as what is being done to keep this important craft alive.
