Spider Rock Girls at Branigan 2017

The Branigan Cultural Center welcomes the Spider Rock Girls, Navajo weavers from Arizona, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 22.

Navajo weavers have created an iconic art genre admired and collected around the world. The Spider Rock Girls are three generations of weavers from the Chinle area in the Navajo Nation. The family has been weaving for generations, and through the sale of their weavings, they have provided food, clothing, and education for the family.

Meet this extraordinary family and learn about their approach to both traditional and innovative weaving techniques and patterns. Members of the family will demonstrate traditional Navajo weaving techniques and will answer questions about their weaving.

Admission to the Branigan Cultural Center is free. The museum is located at 501 North Main St. and is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, and throughout the summer until 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
