Dan Namingha (1950 – present) signature

Dan Namingha is the son of Dextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo and he was raised on the Hopi Reservation. His great grandmother was Annie Healing Nampeyo and grandmother was Rachel Nampeyo (Hopi-Tewa Pottery: 500 Artist Biographies by Gregory Schaaf).

He has been published in over 32 publications, has received commissions for public buildings (e.g. Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix), has had more than 35 exhibits plus more than 16 one-man exhibits, and has received numerous awards. All this attests to his extraordinary talent as a painter.


Originally, he was a realistic painter but began to paint in more abstract ways after 1972. He credits Otellie Loloma, former wife of jeweler Charles Loloma, with encouraging him in this.
