www.seabel.com/archives.php?idA2005091 Photo by- Anonymous The Navajo Nation is the largest Indian tribe in the US. In just over 100 years, the Navajo have made the drastic change from a non-literate, clan-based, pastoral tribe to a modern industrializing society. The Navajo had an early economy consisting of livestock rearing and small-scale agriculture, but it has been ever changing into and economy based on wage labor, industrial organizations and large-scale irrigated farming. This dramatic change has also made dramatic changes in the traditional status of Navajo women. Beginning in 1883, Navajos were placed in limited land under the control of a Navajo Agent representing the US Congress. Even though the Navajo people were confined to specific area, they preferred a traditional lifestyle, and matrilocal residence. This is when married daughters continued to live with their unmarried sibling and their parents. The groom’s family asked the girls parents for their son’s bride, offering gifts of horses, sheep and jewelry. Traditionally, this was to show the importance and appreciation of a woman’s worth. After marriage, the husband joined the bride and her family. During a woman’s life, she enjoyed use rights to lands their ancestors pre-empted; they owned sheep and learned all the subsistence skills as well as tasks associated with weaving. Women also had a say-so in crucial family decisions, as well as control over their own lives. In modern society, women do not enjoy the same benefits they received in the earlier days. Women in Navajo society are holding professional positions and are achieving higher education, which was very hard to come by in the mid 1900’s. They were denied the right to vote until 1928, which is long after women’s rights began in Anglo culture. After interviewing some old friends in Arizona and their family, I found that the women’s status in Navajo culture began to decrease after the stock reduction. Even though they are better off economically, many of the women agree that life was better in the “old days” and that their status was higher and better.

Some other pinners have called this a double weave structure, but I don't think it is. It looks like a rep weave (ripsmatta) with thick and thin wefts.
