A 1971 trip to the American Southwest and a single American Indian jewelry purchase at the Museum of Northern Arizona instilled a new passion in Marti Struever. From that time on, she dedicated her life’s work to the American Indian art business. She passed away in August 2017.
Martha Hopkins Struever (1931-2017) was an American Indian art dealer, author, and leading scholar on historic and contemporary Pueblo Indian pottery and Pueblo and Navajo Indian jewelry. In June 2015, a new gallery in the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian, was named for her. The first permanent museum gallery devoted to Native American jewelry, the Martha Hopkins Struever Gallery, is part of the Center for the Study of Southwestern Jewelry. - Wikipedia
