  • Navajo weaving in the Yeibichai style by Dorothy Peshlakai. The Nightway ceremony is a major curative ceremony which restores harmony. It invokes the Yeis, a special category of Holy People who are inclined to help the Navajo. A nine day ceremony, it is performed during the cold months when there is no chance of being hit by lightning and when the snakes are hibernating. Each dancer wears a ruff of spruce around his neck, and a colorful, short kilt with a concha belt and a kit-fox pelt hanging down his back. These are Blue Faced Fox Dancers. Measures 62.5 by 39.5 inches.
