Week 37--Navajo

This past week we drew inspiration from a Native American culture. To narrow the theme of "Navajo" down to just one thing is a difficult task as the body of their work is extensive and covers all manner of mediums.

Freebird was very excited to work on this topic and chose the "Yeis," superpowers called upon for healing.

Check out her blog to read about her work and what this means to her.

Our official response:

This won't make sense until you read this blog entry.

Please take the time to check out the artists' works and their stories. You will be appreciated and rewarded.
Until next time...


  1. I adore the hummer and the story behind it

  2. Thanks, Freebird. The story of the Yeis is a great one. I learned that the majority of them are depicted with square heads, which means they are women (as opposed to round-headed male Yei) and their culture is matriarchal.
    Glad you like the little birdie! c

  3. Dear Freebird, I'm glad this theme resonated with you and that it lent itself to your beadwork. I know not all the ideas translate well, but this you did fabulously. c
