It was Spider Woman who taught Dine (Navajo) ancestors of long ago the art of weaving upon a loom.She told them, "My husband, Spider Man,
constructed the weaving loom making the cross poles of sky and earth cords to support the structure;navajo loom The warp sticks of sun rays, cross the woof; the healds of rock crystal and lightning, maintain the fibres.
For the batten, he chose a sun halo to seal joints, and for the comb he chose a white shell to clean strands in a combing manner."
