About the artist:
Mallery Quetawki is a member of Zuni Pueblo, an indigenous community in western New Mexico. She received her B.S. in Biology with a minor in Art studio in 2009 from The University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Mallery has created culturally relatable art to translate scientific ideas, health impacts and research on abandoned uranium mines that are currently undergoing study in several Indigenous communities. Her work continues to bridge Traditional Ecological Knowledge or Indigenous Ways of Knowing with Western science and medicine in hopes to create better pathways in communication between scientists, practitioners and Native American communities.
