Eye of the miracle

Fortunate woman, hope survive in tiny Los Ojos
Spinning and weaving classes are regularly offered at Tierra Wools. A member of the Los Ojos community delights in learning how to use the large wooden looms. Tierra Wools is a local cooperative that employs herders as well as weavers.
Altars, chapels and shrines usually were paid for by ricos, rich individuals in the community. After Josepha Burns escaped injury after losing control of her horse and buggy down a steep hill into Los Ojos, she conceived of the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto, which her children had built between 1915 and 1919.
At 87 years old Gabriel Abeyta is a local historian who knows most everything about the county of Tierra Amarilla. He worked for more than two decades in Dulce, N.M., to improve the finances of the Jicarilla Apache tribe.
The sales room at Tierra Wools displays only locally produced woolen crafts in a wide variety of colors and sizes including rugs, wall hangings, coats, shawls and vests.
The T.D. Burns Mercantile store is now home to Tierra Wools. The large adobe building dates to the 1880s. Beginning in 1983 Los Ganados del Valle has renovated the building for offices, wool storage, a weaving room and a sales room.
