Sarah Garcia (b.1928) signature Acoma Pueblo

Sarah Garcia was probably one of the most prolific potters. She was born of a Laguna Pueblo mother (Maria Trujillo) but has spent her adult life as an Acoma Pueblo potter.

Along with Jessie Garcia, Lucy M. Lewis, and Marie Z. Chino, Sarah Garcia (1928 - 2015 Source: granddaughter Starlene Mooney) along was largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma Pueblo pottery wares. Sarah's daughter Goldie Hayah is now carrying on the tradition.
