+ Add Artist to My Preferences

Pablita Quintana Cooka grew up at Cochiti Pueblo and, after marriage to a Hopi-Tewa man in the early 1930s, moved to the Hopi Reservation with him.  After a few years, the couple returned to Cochiti for the remainder of their lives.  Pablita continued making Cochiti figurine pottery until the 1960s, and she died in 1979.  There is a photograph of Pablita Quintana Cooka (1905-1979) and additional biographical information in the book Clay Mirror.  She signs with her last name Cooka.
