the weavers
male weavers of dine' nation
Carleton Jackson

Albert and Susie Jackson's ten-year-old son, Carleton, learns a little bit of everything from his parents. He raises chickens, likes to fish, and helps tend the horses and sheep. Carleton and his sisters attend school in the community of Red Rock, Arizona, east of the Lukachukai and Carrizo mountains.

Carleton likes to negotiate with the trader when his dad sells their rugs at the trading post. His dad says, "My son likes to do a little bit of weaving, too. He's done about three or four. The third one he did he was happy about it. He took it to the trading post and sold it for twenty dollars."
