innovative and contemporary

pottery forms and designs.

Koopee’s combined use of

Sikyatki design elements and

contemporary renditions of

kachinas, attracts museums and

collectors alike. Most recently,

Koopee received the coveted

“Best of Show” award at the

2005 Heard Museum Guild

Indian Fair and Market.

This year, for the first time,

Koopee will be participating in

the Santa Fe Indian Market,

August 20-21. River Trading

Post, in conjunction with

Traditional Pueblo Arts, will

host Jake, along with several

other top Native artists, at a

Atop First Mesa, the ancient art

of creating pottery has been

occurring for hundreds of years.

Although times have changed,

the traditional way in which

these pots are crafted has not.

One exceptional potter who

truly stands out is Jacob

Koopee. Koopee, a descen-

dent of the renowned Nampeyo

of Hano, learned the time-

honored method of pottery

making from such notables as

Dextra Quotskuyva, Marie

Koopee and Kathleen

Dewakuku. Today, this multi-

talented young man is an active

member in his kiva and strives

to preserve the traditions of his

ancestors, while creating

pre-market reception and sale.

Come visit with Jake and pre-

view his work on Thursday,

August 18, from 6-9 pm at

River Trading Post in Santa Fe.

A fine selection of Jake’s

pottery may also be found at

Traditional Pueblo Arts

located within River Trading

Post in Scottsdale, Arizona

and also online at

www.PuebloArts.com .
