Hopi Women's Basket Dance    Watercolor on paper, c. 1925

Fred Kabotie  

1900-1986,  Hopi

 

 

Fred Kabotie's grandson, Ed Kabotie, is an artist in residence at the Museum of Northern Arizona. Ed is a well known, musician, speaker, and Native Rights / Environmental activist.  He's a super nice, kind, soft spoken man.... but he's got a fire in his belly when it comes to racial and environmental injustices.

Beautiful watercolors highlighting some of the great traditions!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - and I love how well they've been preserved!
i like both of them but my favourite is the one with the black board, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think I prefer that one as well, Ayush! Thank you!
I LOVE that you're showing these pieces of art, Elizabeth, documenting Native America life. THANK YOU.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad you're enjoying the series, Ginnie! All close to my heart!

So varied in style, but I guess this is to be expected?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, they are - the top one surprised me a bit - it was the only one like it.

I especially love the trees on the first image.

Both very good images but I'm especially drawn to the circle of women with their own pieces of work.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm glad you like that one, Alan!
The top picture has a Japanese feel to it with that tree
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes it does!

This could be wood inlaid work.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do see how you'd get that!
Wonderful pic's Elizabeth, proud to know Ed, what a nice so talented guy he is.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Frank! I am, too - gutsy, too!
I like both of these pictures so much I can't choose a favourite, just keep them coming Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Brian! I think that's it... these were the best photos I got!
The first is amazing in that you would think it is fabric. To find it is watercolour really surprised me.

The second is similar to a window that I made where each person is in a circle holding a different object. Different from mine had mine sharing each item whereas this one the items are being shown. I really like both of these works.

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I agree - the texture in the top is just incredible! Thank you, Mary!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I LOVE that! You did a beautiful job, and I just love the entire concept! You're so creative!
Fascinating pictures.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I believe so!
I am really struck by the top image, Elizabeth! Not that the 2nd isn't appealing, too smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are both really wonderful, aren't they!

Something I never thought about. If the Navajo's (and the Hopi's, judging by their clothing) have mastered the art of weaving and given the fact that not all peoples in all places, knew about weaving - I wonder how the art got transferred from continent to continent. Maybe that (and the decorative patterns) could provide additional insight into the historical movement of people.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Geez, Louis - good point - I hadn't thought of it. Something for some research, thank you!
