Antonita Cordero Suina (1948 - ) signatureCochiti Pueblo artist Antonita Cordero makes pottery figurines in the tradition of her famous mother.

Following the creation of the Cochiti Pueblo Storyteller figurine by Helen Cordero in 1964, her entire family joined in the process within a few years. By the late 1970s, Helen's son, George Cordero; her daughter, Antonita (Toni) Cordero; her grandchildren, Tim Cordero (who lived in Tuba City and spent the summers at Cochiti with his grandmother), Kevin Peshlakai and Buffy Cordero; her son-in-law Del Trancosa from San Felipe, and her foster daughters-in-law, Kathy Trujillo and Mary Trujillo all were making storyteller figurines.

Antonita Cordero (1948 - ) married Del Trancosa and now lives at San Felipe Pueblo. Adobe Gallery does not know if she is still actively making pottery.
