Storyteller by Alma Loretta (Concha) Maestas

Drummer Storyteller by Alma Loretta (Concha) Maestas
Jemez  Pueblo/Laguna Pueblo, circa 2011
I discovered this distinctive storyteller by Alma Maestas (b.1941) style when I glimpsed the colorful cover of Pueblo Stories & Storytellers by Mark Bahti.    Alma's traditional pottery has been featured in many publications and can also be found in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution.   She signs her work ALMA followed by a water symbol that represents her tribal clan.
