Lynda Teller Pete: Loom with a View

Saturday, March 31, 2pm
Free and open to the public

Two Grey Hills tapestry weaver Lynda Teller Pete was born into the Tabaaha (Water Edge Clan) and born for the To’aheedliinii (Two Waters Flow Together Clan). She was raised in Newcomb, New Mexico, along with her siblings. On a yearly basis, the family took up residence behind the Two Grey Hills Trading Post, where her father worked as a trader for over 35 years. At the trading post, her mother demonstrated weaving and attracted a constant flow of tourists. This program begins with a screening of Loom with a View, a short film about 3 contemporary Navajo weavers. Pete will discuss her family’s legacy of weaving, and Navajo weaving as it relates to the 150th anniversary of Bosque Redondo. She will also demonstrate weaving on a loom. Please join us as we learn more about the people and techniques behind this rich artistic tradition.
