Hand made Storyteller with 40 Children, Artist Carol Suina
Storytellers, in many Native cultures, carry lessons across generational lines. The women who tell these stories preserve traditional customs and confront contemporary problems.
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."
