“Raymond Sequaptewa, whom I’ve known and represented for fifteen years, is a most unusual American Indian artist. A Hopi from Third Mesa, Raymond Sequaptewa is not only a jeweler but also a healer who treats people beset with malaise of various kinds. He is more steeped in traditional Hopi beliefs and mythology than any other artist I know, and this certainly comes through in his work. His jewelry is dramatically one-of-a-kind, totally original in character and can never be confused with anyone else’s work.”
(Martha Hopkins Streuver)
