Abstract

This project is being submitted as part of the requirements for ARTH 3270, Native North American Art. Pottery was a prime form of art within the Navajo and Pueblo tribes. The materials used for the pots were naturally sourced, and the techniques of craftsmanship varied between tribes. The Navajo and Pueblo tribes also used varying symbols applied to the pots to convey meanings of religion, status, and identity. This paper is intended to compare and contrast the various techniques and materials used between the two tribes, and why they were used.
