Artist: Oreland C. Joe, Sr. - Title: Sunbeam Woman

TEXAS LIMESTONE The Navajos and Apaches are cousins. Old stories say there was a division between the two during the migration route. Many of their ceremonies are similar. I have depicted this carving as a young woman sitting at dawn ready to greet the morning sun. There are certain symbols that are meaningful to her and her family. She wears a light hand-tanned buckskin lined with beads. Much of what happens during this offering is personal. It is a time of personal renewal through prayer and song. At the first ray of light from the sun, she blesses herself. Its rays bring power and enlightenment to her spirit. Her physical being, mind and emotions are replenished.
