The most frequently encountered form of Navajo pottery is a long, slender cooking pot, which turns sooty black with use. The vessel doubles as a drum when hide stretched over is mouth. As in the case of basketry, pottery production was limited, due to the religious restrictions placed upon the craftswoman. THe pottery style of the navajo derive from their central Canadian Athabascan ancestors (Conn, 1979, p. 219).
This pot is phyically numbered as P1418, but that is incorrect. The correct number is P1419. It needs to be corrected on the pot.
