Stunning, heartbreakingly beautiful and deliberate statement necklace depicting the struggle of the Navajo elders as they were being held captive in an encampment at Bosque Redondo in Fort Sumner, NM, 150 years ago.  This necklace is an honor piece recognizing the hope the Navajo ancestors had when negotiating a peace treaty with the United States government.  The coin with an eagle from the 1800's, four sacred mountains, four eagle feathers with 150 total plume lines and an 'X' on the clasp represents the signature of the elders on the peace treaty.  The full explanation from the artist is included with purchase.
