Maria Godines-Mnuwai Ayat (Kind Woman) is an indigenous native of Warm Springs and Wasco, instilled with the knowledge of traditional native arts since childhood. Her skills were honed through lessons passed down from her mother and siblings, representing a lineage of generations dedicated to crafting handmade arts, both traditional and contemporary.
Victor Godines, an indigenous Reyes Aztec native of Oaxaca, shares a parallel journey. Learning traditional native arts since childhood, he acquired his skills from his father and brothers. Through the generations, the craft has not only been a form of livelihood but also a vital element in preserving and promoting cultural heritage.
Completing the family trio is Victoria Godines-Latit Latit (Little Flower), one of the daughters who, like her parents, has immersed herself in the learning and creation of traditional native arts. This family tradition ensures that the valuable skills of art continue to be learned and passed on, becoming an enduring legacy for future generations.
