Nellie’s statement: “My greatest source of inspiration is trying hard to be different from all the other weavers. I wanted my own style – I don’t just do it for fun or publicity. I weave every strand from the bottom of my heart.”

An interesting fact about the Three Sisters - Corn, Beans and Squash - is that they are interdependent of one another. Beans grow up the Corn stalks and add the nutrients to the soil and Squash is planted in between the corn to keep weeds out.
