About The Artist:
Dorleen Gashweseoma Lalo (Hopi), a basket maker from Third Mesa, who was inspired by the masterful basket making of her
mother and grandmother. Now she is a master weaver in her own right and a recipient of numerous awards, including most recently
the Arizona Governor’s Arts Award. The first time she submitted work to the 72nd Annual Hopi Festival of Arts and Culture at the
Museum of Northern Arizona, her baskets won five awards, including Best of Show award. Dorleen grew up in a very traditional
Hopi family, and her “school” was working with her grandmother collecting materials and learning how to make baskets. She loved
how her grandmother made baskets out of nature and the products of mother earth. Wherever Dorleen travels she always thinks of
her grandmother as she looks at the native plants to determine what she could use from mother earth to make a basket.Dorleen
