Hisi Quotskuyva Nampeyo (born 1964) is the daughter of Dextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo. She learned the ancient art of making pottery from her illustrious mother and has always been encouraged to display her own creativity in her pieces. She participated in the Santa Fe Indian Market once and sold everything she brought. She never participated again as she has never been able to amass enough inventory to satisfy that demand. Instead, she sells virtually all her pottery to collectors and traders who visit her at her home on First Mesa.
