Marie Suazo

Marie Suazo was a potter from Santa Clara Pueblo. She grew up in a family of potters, learning as she got older. Then, while she was at school in Fort Worth, TX, she met and married Art Cody (also known as Haungooah).

Art was a Kiowa man who was born at Fort Lawton, OK. After they were married, he moved to her home at Santa Clara. At Santa Clara Marie taught Art how to make pottery.

Marie and Art made pottery miniatures together for almost a decade. Then one day in 1981 as she was walking in the vicinity of the Santa Claran ancestral home at Puye she was struck and killed by lightning.
