Betty Manygoats

A traditional Navajo potter, Betty is best known for her horned toad-decorated wedding vases. Horned toads are good luck symbols, for the Navajo. She has won awards, and been mentioned in publications on Native pottery.
Despite her success, she has lived a very rural, traditional life out on the Navajo land,and doesn’t speak much English. Her motivation for making pottery was to help support her large family, and now several of her daughters are also recognized potters.
