PUE­BLO POT­TERY

Where Phoenix - - WHERE NOW -

At­ten­tive lis­ten­ers get a crash course in Ari­zona/New Mex­ico tribal geog­ra­phy and ge­neaol­ogy at King Gal­leries in Scotts­dale. The direc­tor is a pub­lished author­ity on Pue­blo pot­tery, and can re­cite fam­ily lin­eages by mem­ory. King’s reper­toire fea­tures im­por­tant his­toric pieces, three-inch minia­ture works, ves­sels by living el­ders as well as pot­ters in their 20s and 30s, and a few shapes and schemes not typ­i­cally thought of as “In­dian art” (e.g. Vir­gil Or­tiz’s hu­man fig­ures with ex­ag­ger­ated limbs or pots with tat­too-like graph­ics). www.king­gal­leries.com »The lit­tle-known Huhugam Ki Mu­seum in the Salt River Pima-Mari­copa In­dian Com­mu­nity is an old-fash­ioned, bythe-peo­ple fa­cil­ity. No touch­screens or head­sets are re­quired to view vignettes about lo­cal craft­ing, cooking, build­ing and gov­ern­ing. The reed, caliche and adobe mu­seum struc­ture sits four miles east of down­town Scotts­dale.
