Artist, Educator, Performer
Native American Flute Player and Maker
from Jemez Pueblo, New Mexico
This is me in my modern traditional attire playing one of my hand-carved flutes.
I am a tribal member of Jemez Pueblo, a federally-recognized tribe in New Mexico. Flute and song making is my art, and I share it through the flutes I make and through my performances. I am an educator at the Jemez Historic Site where I am able to educate the public about my culture.
My life is centered around my family and community of Jemez Pueblo where I have gained much of my knowledge, and it is where I continue to learn new aspects of who I am. I proudly participate in all aspects of Jemez Life; like, speaking the Jemez Language, planting Jemez corn, singing Jemez songs, and dancing Jemez Dances. I am proud that I am from a place that still continues our ancient ways of life. Read full bio
