Together for 35 years, Marietta and Melvin Juanico (Acoma Pueblo) demonstrate their pottery skills in the Buchsbaum Gallery at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture.
Marietta, an educator who has served as an elementary teacher at St. Joseph Mission School and now is an Acoma Keres language instructor for the Haak’u Learning Center, learned to create her own unique pottery with traditional clay at the age of 6.
Melvin previously served in Acoma Tribal Government and Spiritual Leadership. He is the Sky City Cultural Center & Haak’u Museum Operations Manager.
Both Marietta & Melvin have been participants in the Santa Fe Indian Market for over 20 years and with Native Treasures since the early 2000’s.
