Navajo artwork made for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor

Walking into the AZ Heritage Center at Papago Park, you never know what wonderful history will be displayed in the lobby.
Created for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor when she was a judge in Arizona, this skirt is decorated with Navajo Yei figures. Eddie Basha's aunt made it. Eddie was named a Historymaker in 2001. He was well known for the Basha Supermarkets through Arizona, his devotion to education and his collection of modern Native American art.
