Mona & Charlene Laughing (Dine' (Navajo))
About the Artists
Mona is an award-winning Navajo weaver who took the “Best of Weaving” prize at Santa Fe Indian Market in 2009. Whether working in a natural palette or in more vibrant hues, her designs always demonstrate intricate detail and exceptional skill. She patiently taught her daughter, Charlene, how to weave and she sold her first piece at the age of eight to a trading post in Crystal, NM. Charlene prefers working with natural dyes and dyes her own wool by simmering it with onion skins, coffees, and teas.
