Dawn Navasie – Hopi
Dawn Navasie, “Polaquimana” (Red Tail Hawk), member of the Water Clan, was born into the Hopi-Tewa Reservation in 1961. She was inspired to continue the family tradition of pottery making from her extremely famous Mother, the late Eunice “Fawn” Navasie. Fawn taught Dawn all the fundamentals of making traditional Hopi pottery at the age of 4. Dawn would assist her mother with her pottery and thus inspired her to learn. Dawn began perfecting her pottery making skills at the age of 17.
