Biography Margaret Maria (Corn Blossom) Tafoya
Susan Whittington wrote the following about Margaret Tafoya: The beginning has a response to a comment in The New York Times obituary. Whittington is the artist's granddaugher who gave the eulogy at the funeral of Margaret Tafoya.
Martin's description of my Grandmother's "brief fling with an Apache"

because she didn't want to leave Santa Clara Pueblo and her relatives,
all to whom she was very attached.
