Dennis Pioche

    Navajo folk artist Dennis Pioche started carving when he was only two years old. By the time he was four, he was making his own toys from the tree branches and roots around his home in Blanco Canyon, New Mexico. He began to carve small Navajo men and women from cottonwood after watching his grandfather, who made primitive wood figures for ceremonies.
