Abstract:

"In preparing this publication, the intention was that it serve not only as an accompaniment to the symposium 'Southwestern Textiles: The Navajo Tradition' held at the University Museum, University of Pennsylvania, but that it define the scope of the Museum's holdings of Southwestern textiles, which remain relatively unknown to the public. Information regarding the size, range, and historical background of the collection should prove to be useful to scholars, weavers, and collectors. This collection comprises textiles woven by Navajo Indians, Pueblo Indians from both New Mexico and northeastern Arizona, and Spanish colonists who settled in the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico. Also included are Saltillo sarapes produced in the general region of the town of Saltillo in northern Mexico."--Introduction.
