“Edna Leki is believed to have been Zuni's oldest female fetish carver and is the daughter of famed fetish artist and lapidary Teddy Weahkee. Weahkee became well-known for a style of fetich carving that nearly resembles historic pueblo forms. His daughters, Edna Leki and Mary Tsikewa, carried on the carving tradition, as did Edna's daughters Dinah Gasper and Lena Boone. “Leki originally worked in channel inlay jewelry, but when her father reached an advanced age, she aided him in fetish carving; and, thereafter, she devoted herself to carving.
