|About the Artist
|(Born 1964, Navajo) "As one of the famous Douglas Mesa basket weavers, there wasn't much question about what Peggy Rock Black would choose to pursue in life. Born into a family of weavers before she married into an equally talented family of weavers, fashioning coiled willow baskets were her destiny. Her specialty has been incorporating pictorial designs into her baskets." Gregory Schaafs's American Indian Baskets I 1,500 Artist Biographies.
It is no surprise Peggy Black has won many awards at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff and at the Gallup Ceremonials in New Mexico.
