ARTISAN SPOTLIGHT: Meet Ni+y+ama Cosío

By Valeria Amaral

Meet Ni+y+ama Cosío, she has over 35 years of experience in artisanal craftsmanship. She is one of Kuu’s partner Wixárika artisans. She started by learning how to make simple bracelets that had floral designs. “It is not easy to do this job, we should all be very proud of the work we do as artisans.” -Ni+y+ama Cosío. All of the Wixárika art their culture represents is seen through their work. Ni+y+ama is proud of herself and of the other Wixaritari that work with Kuu, because they are watching their craftsmanship grow and represent their culture and work. Ni+y+ama also feels great security working with Kuu and is happy to do what she loves for work. We are proud to work along side artisans like Ni+y+ama who bring so much culture and art into their craftsmanship.
