Weaving Wisdom with Hard Work: Accomplished Student Learns, Grows, and Gives Back
Kuhl, Eleanor
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v21 n4 p10-12 Sum 2010
Linda Taylor (Dine) raises sheep and horses, creates sculpture, paints, teaches traditional weaving classes, hunts solo for elk and deer, and volunteers at the Methodist Thrift Shop. In the past, she has also cared for Native children in need, and she is currently applying to foster a Navajo girl. On weekends, she sells bales of hay at the Shiprock Flea Market, and if the buyer is pregnant or elderly, she loads the hay. Even with her many interests and talents, Taylor most enjoys teaching her grandchildren about lambs, wool, and responsibility. Taylor is also a tribal college student who practices lifelong learning. When she needed six credit hours to update her Colorado teaching credentials, she signed up for classes at Dine College at Shiprock, New Mexico. In this article, Taylor inspires readers with her talent as a modern weaver and her dedicated efforts to pass Navajo traditions to her family and community.
