Two Yavapai Men Honored: Arizona Living Treasures
Story & Photos by Pamela Williams (excerpt)
It’s not often that the elders in a community are honored, especially when it comes to a lifetime achievement award. But for the Yavapai people, two senior Yavapai Indian artists, Ted Vaughn and David Sine, have been given such an honor by the state in being named Arizona Living Treasures.
Ted Vaughn is recognized as a Yavapai silversmith and language teacher and David Sine as a Yavapai painter.
