        Navajo Rug | History Detectives

        THE DETECTIVE: Eduardo Pagán.

        THE PLACE: Crownpoint, New Mexico.

        THE CASE: History Detectives investigates the mystery behind an unusual Navajo rug. We meet with a Navajo medicine man and a traditional Navajo weaver, and then travel to Crownpoint, New Mexico, long considered the center of Navajo weaving to discover if a weaver violated a taboo to create this rug. Finally, History Detectives visits a textile historian to find out who may have been behind this controversial design.
