Sylvia Naha (1951-1999) was the daughter of Helen Naha (First Featherwoman) and granddaughter of Paqua Naha (First Frogwoman). Rainy Naha was her sister and Burel Naha her brother.
Sylvia mostly created pottery slipped with Hopi's white clay, polishing the formed pots and painting them with bee-weed (black) and native colored slips. In the early 1950s her mother had perfected a method of making white-slipped pottery using Hopi clays that wouldn't crack in the firing. Helen passed that knowledge on to her children and they carried on from there. During the 1980s Sylvia was one of the most innovative of Hopi potters with her whiteware. She tended to create classic forms and paint intricate designs.
Sylvia signed her pottery with the Featherwoman feather and her initial S.
