Pre-Fair Webinar | Modernization and Climate Change: The Challenges of Scarcity in Navajo Fiber Culture

Join us for a free webinar with award-winning Diné/Navajo weaver and silversmith Ephraim “Zefren-M” Anderson. Zefren is from the Four Corners Region of the Navajo Nation. Both of his grandmothers hail from the weaving traditions of the Diné ancestors. He says, “From Two Grey Hills Mary Hunt and from Rattlesnake Charlotte and her mother Elizabeth Tsosie Light, I inherited tools and family weavings, which formed the base of my journey into Diné textiles.”

In 2014, Zefren began an apprenticeship with master weaver, Roy Kady (Diné). He won the Best of Show Award at the 2019 Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market. Zefren’s mission is to blend history, stories, and archaeology to create modern art, so that ancient arts do not fade away. The Heard Museum Guild is proud to present the artwork of Zefren Anderson as part of the 2021 Virtual Indian Fair & Market, March 5-7, 2021.
