Paqua Naha of the Hopi/Tewa, whose first name means 'frog' in Spanish, is more commonly known as the Old Frog Woman. The matriarch of the famed Naha/Navasie family of potters, many of whom have adopted some variation of her frog hallmark, Naha was prolific from 1910-1955.  Known for her challenging pottery shapes-particularly her low seed jars-Naha worked largely with yellowware pottery until late in life when she is credited with developing the white-slipped pottery her family continues ma (showing 500 of 2130 characters).
