Swept Under the Rug: A Hidden History of Navajo Weaving

Kathy M'Closkey
University of New Mexico Press

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.
