"My first visit to the San Ildefonso Pueblo was in 1976. I was barely 30 years of age. It was the summer that my father was working with many prominent contemporary Native artists: Allan Houser, Fritz Scholder, R.C. Gorman, Helen Hardin, to name a few. Between art school, military service and married life, I hadn’t been to Santa Fe in a decade or more. We were staying in Espanola at the time. My father, Isa, was doing research on Maria Martinez, so a trip to “San Ildefonso”, as it’s referred to, was in order. This began a 40-year-long friendship with Frank Martinez. Frank was one of Maria’s descendants. Many Christmas days were spent with the Martinez family where we enjoyed traditional Tewa meals of Northern New Mexico. Guests would arrive and wait their turn to sit down along a long table for a wonderful dinner. All finished plates were left at the table without a trace of food." - Ivan Barnett
