Ceremony is an important component in Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico. Kachinas still visit the village, and costumed performers, like this male rain dancer, annually make appearances. Zuni craftsmen have mastered the process of inlay jewelry, and Andrea Lonjose Shirley’s pin/pendant boasts elements as diverse as coral, jet, malachite, Sleeping Beauty turquoise, mother-of-pearl, abalone, and mussel shell, all set in sterling silver.
