Halaaydm Hanaa’nax (Women of Great Power) Apron

by


This apron is dedicated to the women who have influenced my life and work. The thin lines that connect the faces are the threads that tie us all together. As we travel along life’s journey, it is the people we meet and learn from who help shape us. In my life it has been the women who have helped me on my journey, sharing things that only a weaver could share.
