Knotted Cord

The Knotted Cord

Cultural Education Specialist Shannon Romero (Cochiti) demonstrates how to make cordage from yucca leaves. This knotted cord is similar to those used by Pueblo runners to help coordinate and communicate during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680.
This is a free demonstration but donations are requested. Donate Here
