  • Dextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo is a Native American potter and artist. She is the great-granddaughter of famed Hopi-Tewa potter Nampeyo, who revived Sikyátki style pottery at Hopi; and the daughter of Rachel Namingha, another notable Hopi-Tewa potter. There are now five generations of Nampeyo family potters, and Dextra Quotskuyva is arguably the best potter and painter of this extraordinarily talented family. Dextra's students include her daughter Hisi Nampeyo, her nephews Les Namingha and Steve Lucas, and Loren Ami. Dextra's son Dan Namingha is an internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor. In 1994 Dextra Quotskuyva was proclaimed an “Arizona Living Treasure,” and in 1998 she received the first Arizona State Museum Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2001, the Wheelwright Museum organized a 30-year retrospective exhibition of Quotskuyva's pottery, and in 2004, she received the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts Lifetime Achievement award.
