Jennie Laate was from Acoma and married Noel Laate from Zuni. She learned to make pottery from Daisy Hooee. Jennie taught pottery classes at Zuni High School after Daisy retired. She helped revive Zuni pottery as in 1979 she was the only Zuni pottery at Santa Fe Indian Market. Most of today's potters at Zuni learned from her classes. She focused on traditional clay and materials for the pottery and her today her pieces still have a wonderful charm of the revival Zuni designs.
