Celebrating the Best Flour for Frybread
We found this 10 ounce Blue Bird Flour Coffee Mug at the Gallup Flea Market and managed to get two directly from the artist. Beverly Blacksheep interprets the Navajo culture in her original designs. Here she is celebrating the best flour for frybread, Blue Bird Flour from Cortez, Colorado. The colorful cloth sacks find their way into clothing and bags after the flour is long gone. The mug depicts the standard label in Navajo. Tsídii Dootł’izhí means Blue Bird in Navajo. Ak’áán is flour, and Bááh Náneeskaadí is frybread.
The Blue Bird rests on a sacred corn plant with a charming Navajoland scene in the background. Imagine how much better your coffee or other hot beverage is going to taste!
