A Yei is an adaptation from a sand painting design depicting a Navajo deity. The design appeared around Shiprock in the 1910s.
A Yei-Be-Ches rug represents the human personification of the Yei and are participants in the Night Way Chant. Typically, the figures are shown in dancing profile.
Like sandpainting rugs, Yei and Yei-Be-Ches rugs are much less common due to the complexity of the designs.
