Default Sunflower - Hopi Black Dye

I grew this sunflower variety in 2003, 2004 and 2005. The seeds from this were purportedly used as a dye for the Hopi Indians, hence the name.

Unfortunately, I was not able to salvage seeds from my 2005 season; the birds beat me to them.

IIRC, I bought my original seeds from Baker Creek and I see that they no longer offer it, nor can I locate them elsewhere.

Do any of you know of another source that sells them?
