NAVAJO BLANKET WEAVERS.
Tribe Has 25,000 People, and Most
Of Them Are Polygamists.
Navajo blanket weaving was
studied at close range by P. D. Tull
on his recent six months' tour to
Arizona for his health, says the
Spokane Spokesman-Review. Mr.
Tull, who is much improved in
health, is back to Spokane with
some fine specimens of blankets
which he personally picked up while
in the south. He said:
"These Navajos are one of the
largest tribes in the country, num
bering over 25,000 Indians. Their
reservation is equally large. and is
situated in northwestern New "lex
ico and northeastern Arizona. Out

immense herds of cattle, horses and
sheep. It is from the latter that the
women spin the wool and weave the
blankets and rugs.
