There is never a time
to stop learning new things
This colorized photograph shows a Navajo woman with her weaving loom. The Navajo people were known for making top-quality woven blankets and rugs with bright colors and unique patterns. Weaving was not always part of the Navajo culture, though. For much of the tribe’s existence, it had a semi-nomadic culture, roaming from place to place in the American Southwest as they sought food and water. By around the 1500s, however, the Navajo people settled down and transitioned to an agricultural lifestyle. It was then that they learned the art of weaving.
