Elle of Ganado. The most renowned weaver among the Navahos. She first gained fame by being selected to weave the blanket for President Roosevelt, which was presented by the citizens of Albuquerque. She is wealthy as Navahos go, owning several flocks of sheep, much wampum and the typical Navaho silver jewelry and turquoise. Elle may be seen daily weaving blankets in the Indian Building at Albuqerque. She is perhaps the most widely known Indian woman in the world today, having been seen by thousands of the traveling public.
