Sheep Is Life
Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site hosts Sheep-Lifeway workshops each summer. The next workshop will be in July of 2014.
The Navajo Nation's Sheep Is Life program was started in the 1980s with annual conferences beginning in 1996. Dine Be' Iina will conduct their 2014 conference in Tsaile, Arizona. Smaller, "local" workshops of the SIL program began in 2000 to bring producer/livestock education, fiber arts and animal husbandry experiences into the local Navajo communities and to share the knowledge with other interested visitors.
Bring your wool projects to share with other participants and a picnic lunch to enjoy in the shade of the cottonwood trees.
