Plain-ware Pottery

gallery-01For many Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community members, it is a blessing to have the knowledge to carry on cultural aspects of our ancestors. One of those cultural traditions is pottery-making, and on April 14, O’odham-Piipaash Education Specialist Ron Carlos taught the first of three classes on making plain-ware pottery. Plain-ware pottery is a simple form of pottery that is not polished.
