Carol Suina created Story Tellers for many years. She lived in the Cochiti Pueblo in New Mexico, which is located between Sata Fe and Albuquerque. She learned her art form from her godmother, Mary Anderson. Carol's Indian name was A-che-yhes, and it means "toold that belong in front of a medacine man."
Storytellers, in many Native cultures, carry lessons across generational lines. The women who tell these stories preserve traditional customs and confront contemporary problems.
This hand made Story Teller has 20 children on her.
