For many centuries, Pueblo people have made and used a wide variety of pottery containers, including bowls, jars, cups, ladles, and canteens. Pueblo potters also produced figurines, effigy vessels to be used for religious purposes, pipes, and prayer meal bowls.  The pottery was, and still is, often highly decorated and was traditionally traded throughout the region. Most Pueblo pottery was created by Native American women in the tribes. These designs and techniques were passed down from mother to daughter. Many of these ancient vessels would have been used to store water, cook, as well as hold food and grain. The Prehistoric Pueblo Indians hand-coiled the clay and then painted symbolic tribal designs with natural dye and a yucca-leaf brush.
