Swept Under the Rug: A Hidden History of Navajo Weaving

 Author: Kathy M′Closkey  Category: Book  Publisher: University of New Mexico Press  Published: 2004

Swept utilizes copious information contained in the correspondence and business records of the Lorenzo Hubbell family, Ganado, AZ (~ 1860s-1960s). Lorenzo Hubbell Sr. is considered the czar of Navajo trade and the “father” of the Navajo rug. The book historicizes the economic contributions of thousands of weavers and woolgrowers, whose non-waged labor sustained Navajo lifeways in a culturally appropriate manner.
