Shyatesa White DoveShyatesa White Dove
Acoma

Shyatesa White Dove, “Sister to the Hopi Kachinas”, was born into the Pueblo of the Acoma in 1956. She has been making pottery since 1984. Shyatesa was inspired to continue the tradition in pottery making by her Grandmother, Connie O. Cerno, at the age of 28 and her desire to revive the old historic Acoma Pueblo pottery designs.

Shyatesa specializes in the polychrome traditional Acoma style pottery. Her favorite to design and paint is the traditional parrot & floral motifs. She will either hand coil her pottery or she will paint on ceramic ware. On her hand coiled pottery she will go in search of all the natural clays and paints available to her on the sacred grounds within the Acoma Pueblo. She learned how to clean, mix, coil, shape, paint, and fire her pottery. Shyatesa signs her pottery as: Date pottery was coiled or painted, Shyatesa White Dove, followed by a brief description of pottery style.

Hilda Whitegoat
Navajo
Hilda Whitegoat

Hilda Whitegoat is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born in 1967 into the Navajo Nation. Hilda was inspired to continue a long lived tradition of working with art by observing her sister, Susie Charlie, work on her pottery. Susie who is credited with pioneering the popular Navajo Etched Pottery, shared the techniques of constructing the popular art form known today as “Navajo Etched Pottery” with Hilda. Hilda began crafting pottery at the age of 23, in 1989. The lucrative aspect of the business is also inspiration in her decision to become an artist,being that she has a family to raise and it keeps her close to her children.

Hilda paints on ceramic pottery and uses a sharp blade to hand etch on the pottery. Then, she fires her pottery in a kiln. She paints and etches on all sizes of ceramic ware available to her. She signs her pottery as: Hilda Whitegoat, Navajo. Hilda is related to the following artists: Everson Whitegoat (brother), Myron Charlie (nephew), and Michael Charlie (nephew).
