Illinois Prairie Spinners Adopt a Native Elder

The Illinois Prairie Spinners recently made a donation to a nonprofit called the Adopt-a-Native-Elder Program in honor of guild member Jane Plass. Jane is the guild treasurer and program cochair, in addition to newsletter editor and webmaster. The Adopt-a-Native-Elder Program supports over five hundred Navajo, or Diné, traditional elders in southern Utah and northern Arizona. The guild's surprise tribute to Jane is a continuation of its annual support for The Navajo Sheep Project .


Navajo Churro sheep and the Navajo Sheep Project founder, Dr. Lyle McNeal, were also recently featured in a great NPR story entitled Sacred Sheep Revive Navajo Tradition, For Now .
