History Detectives investigates the mystery behind an unusual Navajo rug. We meet with a Navajo medicine man and a traditional Navajo weaver. We travel to Crownpoint, New Mexico, long considered the center of Navajo weaving to discover if a weaver violated a taboo to create this rug. Finally we meet a textile historian to find out who may have been behind this controversial design.
