Six Yei figures are surrounded on three sides by the Rainbow God Yei. The East side of the design does not need protection it is said that no evil comes out of the East. The reason why we have our front doors face East in architecture design. The sun rises from the East and bad weather rarely comes out of the East. The Yei design originated in the Four Corners of the the Navajo Nation but today these weavings can come from all over the Southwest. A Navajo weaving with Yei design by Lillie Lee.
