WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: INTRICATE

NATIVE AMERICAN ART

While visiting the Cameron Trading Post in Cameron Arizona, I had the opportunity to witness the art of rug weaving in action with rug weaver Elsie Gander as she weaves Navajo rugs demonstrating this intricate art. As well as beautifully detailed Hopi Kachina dolls by carvers such as Touchoney Slim.  Plus an authentic Native American Headdress.

The trading post also houses fine Native American Indian jewelry, historic and contemporary.

In the oldest frontier tradition, trading posts were the common ground where culture, art and community met and flourished.

  2. I love Navajo rugs and when I’m visiting my parents in Arizona, we always go to downtown Scottsdale to visit all the shops. I also love Indian jewelry but alas, I have expensive tastes. 🙂
