Spider Woman, A Story of Navajo Weavers and Chanters By Gladys A. Reichard

Spider Woman, A Story of Navajo Weavers and Chanters

Gladys A. Reichard

Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 226 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1934.


This is an ethnography of Navajo weavers and herders. In this book, Reichard explores the intersection between the fiber arts, mythology, and sand painting, all told in first person. Although completely factual, it reads like a novel. The book is also significant because it is a woman anthropologist exploring the world of Navajo women, their material and spiritual culture.
