Old Father Story Teller
Born and raised at Santa Clara Pueblo near Santa Fe, Pablita Velarde has achieved national and international recognition as one of the greatest American Indian artists. She has selected six of the most memorable Santa Clara tribal stories she heard as a child for her book Old Father Story Teller. They are simply written, much as Pablita related them to her own children. For each story she has created natural earthtone paintings in the unique style that has become her hallmark. This book reveals the artist at her best and will delight old and young alike.
