Sarah Garcia was born of a Laguna Pueblo mother (Maria Trujillo) but has spent her adult life as an Acoma Pueblo potter, probably one of the most prolific potters at the pueblo. She, along with Jessie Garcia, Lucy M. Lewis, and Marie Z. Chino, was largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma wares. Sarah's daughter Goldie Hayah is now carrying on the tradition.
Sarah Garcia passed away on July 5th 2015. [Source: granddaugher Starlene Mooney.]
