Lecture: Indigenous Women Artists

Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall Street, San Diego

Visual Arts

With the exception of Native American artist Maria Montoya Martinez (1887–1980), who gained fame for her exquisite pottery from San Ildefonso Pueblo, most of the indigenous women artists in this lecture remained relatively unknown beyond their native environment: Nampeyo (1859–1942), a Hopi-Tewa potter, who lived on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona; Kenojuak Ashevak (1927–2013), a Canadian Inuit graphic artist who was born in an igloo; and Emily Kame Kngwarreye (1910–1996), an Aboriginal Australian artist from the Utopia region in the Northern Territory, and her relatives Minnie Pwerle and Barbara Weir.
