Pottery Pete: Revitalizing Hodinöhšo:ni:h Pottery

Ancient Voices Media, is an indigenous, female-owned business featuring indigenous dancing,  performing arts productions, indigenous language and culture contract services, public speaking on indigenous historical trauma and indigenous culture, multimedia 2-D art, and more. Led by Jocelyn J. Jones and her sister, Cami Jones, this short documentary provides an intimate exploration of the artistic journey of their uncle, Peter B. Jones. Peter is a distinguished Hodinöhšo:ni:h potter who has played a pivotal role in the revitalization of Hodinöhšo:ni:h pottery.

This video was made as part of the 2023 Community Documentation Workshop, an 8-part workshop series designed to teach residents how to gather and share stories in ways that unify our diverse region, advance cultural equity, and reflect the dignity and resilience of the people within our community.

As our friends, collaborators, and community partners complete their documentaries, The ARTS Council is proud to amplify their stories.

Support for the Community Documentation Workshop is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Corning Incorporated.
