Georgiana Kennedy Simpson from Twin Rocks Trading Post interviews Navajo Rug Weaver Allison Billy.
Allison is one of the few men in Utah, or in any part of the Navajo Nation, who is a weaver. Traditionally a woman’s art, Allison talks about how he learned (from his grandmother), and when he learned –when he was nine years old.
Allison is a terrific storyteller, and listening to a rare person is always, well, a rare treat.
