This year, the Festival is presenting TahNibaa Naataanii – an artist who creates with weavings and hand felting techniques to produce wearable art. As a young girl, TahNibaa’s paternal grandmother gave her the Navajo name of: TahNibaa Atlo’iigii, which means “coming into battle with weaving.” She believes it was her grandmother’s hope that she continue the tradition of weaving in their family. She is now a fifth-generation Navajo Weaver and represents the Many Hogan Clan and Coyote Pass Clans, and her maternal and paternal clans are the Mexican and Steep Rock Clans.
The Trailing of the Sheep Festival will present its first annual Farm to Table(aux) fundraiser themed POP! GOES THE WARHO. Guests will enjoy an evening of art, food, drinks, and auctions to support the Trailing of the Sheep Festival’s mission to gather, celebrate, present and preserve the history and cultures of sheepherding in Idaho and the West.
