Handmade and signed B. Loretto by Jemez artist Beatrice Riley. Beatrice Riley was born in the Jemez Pueblo in 1951 and began her long career at an early age. She crafts her pottery the old way, using natural pigments and a wood fire outside her home. The entire procedure is done by her from start to finish, from mixing the clay to painting the final figures. 

The Native American Indian storytellers represent an important part of the oral tradition found in many Native American Indian cultures. Native Americans often use storytelling as a teaching tool for young generations to learn about traditional cultural values and beliefs. Our storytellers vary from traditional to contemporary and whimsical. Each storyteller is bought directly from Pueblo artists, so they are guaranteed authentic.
