Navajo traditions expressed at MNA arts, culture festival

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - In Navajoland, inspiration for the fine arts comes from the wide expanses of earth and sky that are sacred to the Diné people. This year's 60th Annual Navajo Festival of Arts and Culture at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, on Saturday, Aug. 1 and Sunday, Aug. 2, will focus on the collectible coiled Navajo pottery and the intricate rug weaving for which this culture is known.
