(1971- Present) Pueblo: Zuni Pueblo
Brian comes from a family of jewelry artisans. His mother, Janta Yatsattie, was known for her petit-point jewelry. He began his artistic career as a painter. In 1989 Brian began carving because “it looked like fun.” In 1992 he moved to San Felipe Pueblo and is now teaching others the art of fetish carving. He is a most creative and talented carver who makes one of a kind, custom Zuni carvings, which are straight forward, stylized and appeal to a wide variety of fetish buyers and collectors.
