RANDY BROKESHOUL­DER (NAVAJO/HOPI/AB­SEN­TEE SHAWNEE)

Native American Art - - CARVINGS -

“I’m Diné, Hopi and Ab­sen­tee Shawnee. I work as a banker by day and artist by night. I’m a third-gen­er­a­tion carver, who learned from my father Nick Brokeshoul­der, and he learned from his grand­fa­ther, Guy Mak­tima. My carv­ings are all cot­ton­wood root, all nat­u­ral pig­ments, all done by hand. I use files, cop­ing saws and pocket knives to carve them. I use all-nat­u­ral ac­ces­sories used to put dolls to­gether such as nat­u­ral cot­ton, leathers, feath­ers and horse hairs.”
