Dextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo signaturePicture of Dextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo Hopi PuebloDextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo descends from a distinguished ancestral line of potters—beginning with the Sikyatki ancestors of prehistoric times and more recently from her great-grandmother, Nampeyo of Hano and her grandmother Annie Healing Nampeyo. Following tradition in every aspect of construction and firing has always been a rule with her, but using her own creative talent in the execution of vessel shape and design is what has set her apart from others and made her one of the greatest Hopi potters of the 20th Century. She was born on September 6, 1928 on the Hopi Reservation where she still maintains her home.
