Salina Begay: I am Red Running into Water People Clan (Ye’ii Tachii’ nii Dine’e). I am Yucca Fruits Strung in a Line People Clan (Hash’aa hadzohi Dine’e). I was born in Black Mesa in the northern portion of the Navajo Nation and have been weaving since 1999. I learned how to weave by observing my mother’s weavings. This is how I support my children as a single parent. For the past 15 years I have had health problems with rumathoid arthritis and my fingers are deformed. I can’t see well because of the arthritis, causing eye, liver, digestive problems and my joints are swollen. I still weave. It keeps me going and keeps my mind off my stress.
