Kevin Sekakuku (shown in photo with his daughter Anyssa) was born Aug 2, 1977 in Tuba City, AZ. He is of the Sun Clan and lives in the village of Kykotsmovi where he was raised. Taught by three of his uncles, Kevin began carving at the age of seven. After attending the Santa Fe Indian School for a time he returned to Hopi and completed high school.

Kevin won a total of five ribbons and prize money in that first show and has been committed to carving ever since. Kevin was awarded Best in Clasification at the 2007 Indian Market in Santa Fe, NM.
