Seven textiles made by members of the Navajo tribe. Four were donated by Joe Ray Jones in 1982. The architect Walter Netsch donated two rugs in the Two Grey Hills style while he was designing the 1980's wings of the libray.

Two of the textiles are made to look like Navajo rugs but are not authentic. According to the original inventory notes there are three more Navajo rugs that have yet to be located (as of 1/8/2020 - Kerri Menchaca).
