Keshshi, my name is Shannon Jade Waatsa, and I am a fetish carver from the Zuni Pueblo. I started carving a year and a half ago and was mentored by another well-known young Zuni artist, MaeganShetima. I learned by observing her first and seeing the techniques she uses, then I started on my own and created my first fetish. She has been since giving me pointers and helping me along the way, as I have her. I like to carve the more non-traditional and realistic fetishes. I do make traditional fetish but not as often.
