Perhaps more than any other art form, Native American Indian pottery reflects the values and culture of Southwestern Pueblos and tribes. Drawing on geometric patterns and symbols characteristic of the much earlier Mimbres culture, contemporary Native American Indian pottery still reflects a profound understanding of the relationship between Land and People.
