Goldie A. Hayah was given the Indian name of “Shro Te Ma”. She is a member of the Turkey Clan, and she is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born in 1956 into the Acoma Pueblo. She was inspired to learn the art of working with clay, by observing her mother and other members of her Pueblo hand coil their pottery. She has been hand coiling pottery for over 35 years now.

Goldie specializes in handmade and ceramic pottery with hand painted animals and flower designs. She gathers her clay from within the hills of the Acoma Pueblo. She breaks the clumps of raw clay to a powder form. Then, she cleans and sifts the powder for impurities, hand mixes with other natural pigments, hand shapes, allows the pottery to dry, hand sands with sand paper, and hand paints her designs. Finally, she fires her pottery the traditional way, outdoors with wood chips. Among her favorite designs to paint, she enjoys hand painting parrots, bears, and antelopes. She signs her pottery as: Goldie Haya, Acoma, N.M. She is related to: Jackie Histia (cousin), Darren Pasquale (cousin), and Tina Garcia (aunt).
