Fred and Lolita's favorite traditional Zuni designs are the Knifewing, Rainbow Man, and Sunface. They have been creating beautiful jewelry since the 1970's. Fred and Lolita Natachu work in mosaic and channel inlay. Lolita is the daughter of Jacob Haloo. Her sisters, Dolly Banteah, Rolanda Haloo and Nancy Lasconsello, are also recognized Zuni artisans. They are named in Wright's Hallmarks of the Southwest and many other Zuni jewelry reference books. PLEASE NOTE: I have been told that the Natachus are no longer making jewelry.
