Teec Nos Pos, AZ Master weaver Roy Kady is celebrating his birthday today. Although it’s a little late in the day, I wanted to wish him a happy day and a great year to come. As you can see above, Roy is a fantastic weaver. He also maintains a large flock of Navajo-Churro sheep and is the president of the Teec Nos Pos Chapter. A chapter is a basic unit of Navajo government and in this capacity, Roy is introducing great innovations which emphasize self-sufficiency and environmental responsibility. Among his projects is the Baa Baad W00l Co-op, which aims to bring wool processing back to Navajo land. Last year. Roy was selected to represent the Navajo Nation as a cultural ambassador to Ecuador, and he’s been asked to return next year.
Nízhónígo naníná doo, Roy! May you walk in beauty.
