Hand Crafted Pottery Storyteller By Aaron Mirabal ~ Taos Pueblo

Using local micaceous clay Pueblo artists like Aaron Mirabal create their own one of a kind style of the Storyteller. The Storyteller, usually a grandparent in the community will tell stories to the young children. These stories teach the children about their heritage and culture and honors a time when there was no written language.

These Storytellers or "Singing Grandmothers" figures originated in the Cochiti Pueblo by an artist named Helen Cordero in 1964. Helen's storytellers became so popular that many Pueblo artists were inspired to create their own storytellers in their own style and taste. 

This grandmother Storyteller shares her stories with three children.
