This book recounts life of We'wha (1849-96), the Zuni Native American from New Mexico, who was perhaps the most famous Lhamana (someone who performs social and ceremonial roles of both men and women) on record. We'wha worked as a mediator, weaver, fiber artist, and cultural ambassador for Zuni peoples.
