House of Rain


All over the Americas are oral traditions of a group of people coming from all directions and going in all directions. The Could people who live in houses built of mist, water and Rain. Some painted white others painted red but one symbol links all the physical places. A serrated hook, ones that follows Cotton, the Sun and a rotational symmetry of a those weaving pioneers. Painted on a curricular wooden plank at Chetro Ketl, in Chaco Canyon National Park, a stone mortar jar in Pueblo bonito nearby and carved in stone Friezes in the Ruins of Mitla the pattern repeats also in Mexico and Peru. Fragment of cloths with the same symbol woven in a rare diamond twill tapestry technique in grand gulch Utah. The House of Rain is woven with Historical Navajo interlocking twill technique, within the small diamond twill count common among older women’s dresses of the Pueblos, Navajo and Navajo saddle blankets. A old technique that could conjecturally span from 900 CE to the end of the 13th century in the Colorado plateau but surviving after only in belts and dresses of the historic period. This weaving is dedicated to those early Women weavers and later joined by men that spread weaving all over the Americas to solidify the common heritage every culture shares with the Spider Woman and her partner. Part of a shared story of weaving lasting thousands of years. Woven from reservation grown Navajo Churro and dyed with modern dyes the weaving is the primordial, historic and future of weaving in one textile.
