Tenorio, Thomas (b. 1963)

Thomas Tenorio is from the Aguilar family of Kewa Pueblo. His name in Keres is U-Nah-Thee-Wah. When he began making pottery he felt that the ancient traditional methods of pottery making was dying within his pueblo so he was inspired to try and resurrect the long lived legacy. Thomas taught himself to make traditional pottery by reading textbooks, conducting one on one interviews with other pottery makers and research. He has won awards at Santa Fe Indian Market for his large scale pottery.
