Iva HonyestewaEric and Barbara Dobkin ArtistA Hopi/Navajo basketmaker from Second Mesa, Arizona, Iva Honyestewa has been creating Hopi sifter baskets for sixteen years. “I learned how to make sifter baskets from my first cousin Beth Dawahongnewa. In 2006, my cousin told me she couldn’t believe how good I made them. That’s when I decided to enter the art competitions. I am excited that I am climbing the ladder of the artist world … I believe I can share my art with the world in creating new unusually unique baskets or figures.”
