“My art,” says Hopi Potter Dee Setella, “is the contribution of a thousand years of Hopi art and cultural expression.  When working with the clay, it’s like you’re bringing it to life.  You must treat it with respect.  It’s like you’re raising a child, guiding it through the growing stages and nurturing it well.  You must be very grateful for the clay and pottery.  I pray each morning with cornmeal.  And, when we dig clay, we leave a food offering.  You can’t be greedy and not leave anything.”

The Navajo are relatively recent arrivals to the Southwest. They probably migrated from the north in the 16th Century thereby becoming a part of the Pueblo IV period. The Navajo have made pottery since their arrival; possibly they brought pottery with them during their southern migration. They made a plain and decorated pottery. The plain being considered the older style? More about this legend
