Navajo Blanket Donation Exhibit

Saturday, June 21

The Farmington Museum is proud to announce an incredible gift of 21 historic Navajo blankets generously donated by XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation. The Navajo blankets range in age from 1870 to 1900 and contain two third-phase Chief’s blankets, a small wearing blanket, and many other examples of early Navajo weaving from the blanket period. It is through their donation that the cultural beauty, legacy, and local Navajo heritage can be appreciated, preserved, and utilized to inspire future generations of Navajo weavers.
