Native American Jemez Made Storyteller with Two Cats and One Dog
Native American Jemez Made Storyteller with Two Cats and One Dog by Chrislyn Fragua
Classic storyteller by Chrislyn Fragua from Jemez, NM. The woman is telling stories to her pets about the cultural history of her people. The two cats and the dog seem quite content to hear her stories. The storyteller is an adaptation of centuries-old creations in figurine pottery. Cultural traditions and values have historically been passed on by tribal elders through songs an stories geared to teaching the young. It is in these delightful representations that the intense love of the Native American Indians for their children is most clearly shown.
