Weaver Gilbert Begay will be among the participants at Navajo Weaver's Day July 17, in Window Rock, AZ.

Window Rock, AZ The Navajo Nation Museum has designated Friday, July 17 as their first Dinéjík’éhgo ‘Atło (Navajo Weaver’s Day).  The event will feature vendors, weaving demonstrations, food, a symposium, and two screenings of  the 2007 documentary “Weaving Worlds” (at 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM).  “Weaving Worlds” director Bennie Klain and weaver Gilbert Begay are among the participants in a panel discussion following each showing of the film, which is about an hour in length.   Click here to see a trailer for the film.  

Visitors will also have the opportunity to visit the ongoing “Generations” exhibit of Two Grey Hills weaving at the museum.   The event is free and is open to the public.  Make your plans to be there now; I’ve got my trip planned!
