Nampeyo and Her Pottery, by Barbara Kramer. Pueblo pottery and Pueblo potters have long been of interest to anthropologists, artists, and other scholars. University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. Pueblo pottery has been a focal point of government, museum, and individual collecting activities for well over a century, beginning with the work of Major John Wesley Powell and later Colonel James Stevenson on behalf of the . Geological Survey and the Bureau of (American) Ethnology.

By the turn of the century, Nampeyo had revitalized Hopi pottery by creating a contemporary style inspired by prehistoric ceramics. Military men, missionaries, anthropologists, photographers, artists, and tourists all collected her unsigned work. This biography contributes to an understanding of changes on the Hopi reservation effected by outsiders during Nampeyo's life and the complex response of American society to Native Americans and their art. Kramer also presents the first stylistic analysis of vessels made by Nampeyo.

Nampeyo, the famous Hopi-Tewa potter (1860-1942), is known for the grace and beauty of her work, but very little accurate information has been available about her life. Romantic myths, cultural misunderstandings, and outright distortions have obscured both Nampeyo the artist and the person. Based on an exhaustive search of first-person accounts, photographic evidence, and interviews with family members, Kramer provides the only reliable biography of the artist.By the turn of the century, Nampeyo had revitalized Hopi pottery by creating a contemporary style inspired by prehistoric ceramics.

Barbara Kramer writes a much needed biography of Nampeyo, the Tewa potter. This book is a comprehensive look at Nampeyo's life, as both a member of the Hopi/Tewa nation, and as a seminal artist. Kramer also succesfully challenges much of the conventional wisdom surrounding Nampeyo's life and work, some of which has persisted for almost a century.
While setting the context in which Nampeyo lived and worked, Kramer also draws a vivid picture of life in the Hopi/Tewa villages at the close of the 19th Century. Beset by archeologists, ethnographers, and missionaries, the Hopis attempted to maintain a way of life and culture that had sustained them for generations.
Kramer writes in a clear, accessible style, and makes liberal use of quotes and other references from Nampeyo's extended family. For anyone interested in the history and development of 20th Century Hopi pottery, this book is a must read.
