Roy Kady

Weaver, shepherd and chapter president Roy Kady is celebrating his birthday today!

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.
