This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A member of the Hopi Indian tribe, Otellie Loloma was born in 1922 in Sipaulovi Village, Second Mesa, Arizona and died in January 1993. She is best known for her ceramic sculpture as well as painting, jewelry making, and teaching. In 1961, she was an instructor for the Southwest Indian Art Project at the University of Arizona, and in 1962, was named to the staff of the Institute of American Indian Arts.

Loloma attended Oraibi High School and the University of Arizona in Tucson and the University of Northern Arizona. She was an operator of arts and crafts shops.

Her work is in the collection of the Indian Arts and Crafts Board of the Department of the Interior in Washington DC; the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona; the Institute of American Indian and Alaska Native Culture in Santa Fe, New Mexico; the Museum of the American Indian in New York City; and the Philbrook Art Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
