With Admiration and Gratitude

As a non-Native steward of a collection of Native art, I am aware that it is integral to my work to show respect and to care for Pueblo pottery and its cultural significance. I have learned so much, and am grateful to everyone at the Indian Arts Research Center at the School for Advanced Research and to each community member for their contributions to my growth as a curator and as a person. I am truly honored to have played a small part in this revolutionary endeavor. With admiration, I share this remarkable Hopi bowl.
