Elder with rug

Although many may be poor monetarily, traditional Navajo Elders are some of the culturally richest people in the world. Some Diné Elders live traditionally in hogans with dirt floors. Others live in simple structures with no running water or electricity. Most live simple but harsh lives, raising their sheep in the remote areas of the Navajo Reservation and turning wool into incredible works of art by creating their world-famous Navajo rugs.

No two rugs are the same and each one is truly a piece of art. As they pray, the weavers are inspired by Spirit to weave the patterns that they see in their minds eye.

The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program is dedicated to the many weavers who enrich our lives through their art. Weavers set their own prices and receive 100% of their asking price. Because every rug and piece of jewelry is one-of-a-kind, the first person to complete payment for an item will receive the rug or jewelry. Thank you for being here and for your support of the Elders! 

Rug sizes are listed in inches.

AUTHENTIC NAVAJO RUGS

"You might think you’re just buying a rug, but you are providing so much more than that. You are giving someone hope. Most of our weavers are in their 80s and 90s. These Elders don’t speak English and have no means of travel or places to sell their rugs. For many of the Navajo grandmas, selling their rugs to you here is a life-saving opportunity."

~ Linda Myers, Founder and Director of Elder Care
