Lynda Teller Pete

Lynda Teller Pete is a fifth-generation Navajo weaver who is known for weaving in the traditional Two Grey Hills pattern. Her father, Sam Teller, worked at the Two Grey Hills Trading Post in New Mexico, where she was raised with her two sisters and two brothers. The Two Grey Hills style is identified primarily by a double-diamond layout, intricate geometric design using natural colored, hard carded and hand-spun wool as well as high weft counts. Teller Pete teaches Navajo weaving workshops with her sister, Barbara Teller Ornelas, including at Idyllwild Arts Academy’s Native American Arts Program.

Alongside Barbara Teller Ornelas, she is the author of "How to Weave a Navajo Rug and Other Lessons from Spider Woman."
