Four Winds Weavers - Navajo Rug Legend
Spider Rock in Canyon De Chelly
Mythical Home Spider Woman
Spider Woman instructed the Navajo Women how to weave on a loom which
Spider Man told them how to make. The crosspoles were made of sky and
earth cords, the warp sticks of sun rays, the heddles of Rock Crystal and
sheet lightning. The batten was a sun halo, white shell made the comb.
There were four spindles: one stick of zig-zag lightning with a whorl of
cannel coal; one stick of flash lightning with a whorl of turquoise; a third
had a stick of sheet lightning with a whorl of abalone; a rain streamer
formed the stick of the fourth and its whorl was white shell.
