The Native American people of this region have lived in harmony and respect with their natural environment.

Stories of their emergence and of their living history are handed down from one generation to the next through prayer and song. The traditional knowledge of their ancestors is the basis for how they live today and is reflected in architecture, traditions, arts and ceremony.

We are most grateful for the blessings of our Earth Mother as she provides us with all that we need to sustain our livelihood now, and into the future. As native people living in modern times, we have a responsibility to maintain balance with our natural environment and world trends. As you explore this collection of traditional and contemporary artwork, you will see memories of the past as well as the voice and creativity of modern native people.

We invite you to enjoy this celebration of cultural art.

Robin Teller

Robin, proud mother of two and grandmother of five, was the last of the daughters to begin working in clay. Grounded by her culture, she finds inspiration from her children and grandchildren, her spiritual journey with life’s experiences, as well as her reverence for all of our Creator’s blessings.

Robin integrates these feelings into her pottery creations, always expresses an individual story or message into her pieces and is recognized for the intricate detailing in the forms and painting. She uses her pottery pieces as mini canvases. Like her mother and sisters, mostly self-taught she says there’s a standard of excellence and quality to uphold with the family tradition, but as an individual artist she’s always looking to be able to express her inner most feelings about love, hope and beauty for the world and humanity.
