Baker has a collection of Native American rugs and has for years grown corn for 11 of the 19 pueblos in northern New Mexico and Arizona.
The exhibit includes rugs, kachinas, pottery and other art.
There are 15 recognized weaving areas in New Mexico and Arizona, Baker said.
This Navajo weaving will be the prize in a Fort Morgan Museum drawing, with pro ceeds going to a project to update the permanent exhibit area.
The next brown bag lunch at noon Dec. 14 will explore the history of Fort Morgans founders.
Baker handed out samples of a drink made from blue corn ground and combined with boiling water. Often it is flavored with natural salt gathered from a lake by Native Americans. He said he drinks the concoction a lot during the winter, particularly to help him get over a cold.
The kachinas are often carved from cottonwood, which is light and easy to carve, he said.
Also, Baker said, "The older people that had a desire to do those traditional things are fading away. "
Items from both collections are in the current exhibit, "Hogsett Reunited," at the Fort Morgan Museum.
Weavings like the one being raffled off have a subtle imperfection somewhere in the pattern, Baker said, sort of like a trademark, and they always contain a "spirit line" so spirits can be free to get out of the design.
Proceeds will go to help finance an update of the permanent exhibits. The cost of the upgrade could be around $200,000, museum officials have said.

Native American weavings like the ones in the Robert Hogsett collection on display now at the Fort Morgan Museum are becoming harder to come by and more expensive, longtime collector Bill Baker told an audience at a museum brown bag lunch Tuesday.
A drought in 2000 depleted seed supplies in those areas, he said.
