"Catalina Zunie was another of the master potters who was working in the 1930s, and she contributed significantly to the survival of the craft by teaching pottery making in the Twin Buttes Day School at Zuni at a time when some predicted the production of pottery would soon die out at the Pueblo. In addition, she produced several pottery vessels that were collected by the Indian Arts Fund in the 1920s and 1930s," Lanmon, Dwight P and Francis H. Harlow, "The Potters of Zuni Pueblo of the 1920s and 1930s," American Indian Art Magazine, Summer 2008, pp. 58 - 67.
