Weaving - Navajo Shiprock Yei Weaving - Handmade - 1940s - Material Culture

A hand woven "Yei" rug made by Navajos in the 1950's. This intriguing Yei style rug is strongly representative of Navajo ceremonies centered on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. The "Holy People" portrayed in Yei weavings communicate between the Navajo People and the gods, and are believed to restore health & spiritual well being when called upon in a properly conducted ceremony. The stylized woven figures carry rattles, pine boughs, or yucca strips. The Yei weaving style originated in the Shiprock, NM area of the Navajo Nation, but today is woven throughout the Nation and many rugs are often made of bright and bold hues on a grey background.
