This discussion is the third of four events in this year’s Native Arts Speaker Series.

The 2023 SAR Native Arts Speaker Series, Grounded in Clay Conversations, celebrates the Grounded in Clay project, which includes a traveling exhibition, catalog, and documentary, by headlining stories that have surfaced as a result of this project and opening conversations about lesser-known narratives intersecting Pueblo people and pottery.
