Pueblo: Zuni Pueblo

Bernard Homer, Jr. is a well-known Zuni Pueblo Fetish carver whose fetishes are traditional in look and style, and yet are creative and powerful.

He is the son of Bernard Homer Sr. (d.) and Alice Leekya (d.). Alice was the daughter of Leekya Deyuse (d.), one of the most famous Zuni fetish carvers of all time. Bernard Sr. learned the art of Zuni fetish carving from Leekya Deyuse, and kept his carvings in the style of his father-in-law. Today, Bernard Homer Jr. and his sister, Juana Homer, keep their father’s and grandfather’s style of fetish carving alive.
