Sandra Victorino was born into the Acoma Pueblo in 1958. She was inspired to learn the art of hand coiling pottery from admiring her famous aunt, Dorothy Torivio (one of Acoma’s finest potters still alive today). Sandra strongly believes traditional ways must be kept alive to continue the long lived legacy of her people.
