In Search of Nampeyo
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Lecture and Booksigning with Steve Elmore

In Search of Nampeyo presents new information on Nampeyo’s early life as a Hopi potter in the 19th century. Working with the British trader Thomas Keam, she single-handedly saved Pueblo pottery from obscurity and created a new art movement, the Sikyatki Revival, by re-interpreting designs from the past. Mr. Elmore’s discovery of Nampeyo’s early ceramics in the Keam collection in the Peabody Museum at Harvard is presented, as well as information that strongly suggests Nampeyo was an early American modernist. Signed copies of Mr. Elmore’s book In Search of Nampeyo: The Early Years, 1856 – 1942 will be available.

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

Good friends with Gary Snyder and Allen Ginsberg, Sakaki was encouraged by them to travel to the US, and in 1971 he was drawn to northern New Mexico where he ended up living in a school bus below Taos Mountain. Sakaki’s poetry is marked by humor and appreciation for a simple lifestyle, the embodiment of unconventional wisdom and spirited non-conformism. Brandi, founder of Tooth of Time Books, published Sakaki’s first major collection poetry, "Real Play" and will speak about Sakaki’s poetry and role as a countercultural literary icon.

More formally known as “The Creston,” a prominent volcanic dike forms a curtain across the landscape in the southwestern portion of the Galisteo Basin. Famous in the pantheon of great New Mexico rock art locations, the south face of the top of The Creston is the canvas for a remarkable array of pecked images, most dating from the fifteenth through seventeenth centuries and perhaps later.
