+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Artist Frieda Youhoeoma was a weaver from the Hopi village Shipaulovi. Clouds, corn, and Katsinam were some of her preferred designs.
A Sun Forehead Clan member, Frieda Youhoeoma was born in 1939 and became active in the 1950s and continued making baskets until her passing in 2001. She learned the art of basketry from her mother, Alta Seyesnema, and passed her knowledge along to her own daughters.
Frieda is included in Helga Teiwes’ book Hopi Basket Weaving: Artistry in Natural Fibers, pages 110-112.
