    Hoyesva (Peter Shelton, Jr.), also known as Sekaho, Yellow Arrow, Wherever the

    Arrow Lands, likely began carving around the 1940s, learning from master Fred

    Kabotie. He lived on Third Mesa, in Kykotsmovi. He served in the U.S. Army in

    the Korean War, was the Lt. Governor of Kykotsmovi Village, and was a

    representative on the Hopi Tribal Council. His work has won many awards, has

    been exhibited numerous times, and is included in the collections of the

    Smithsonian Institution, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Heard

    Museum, and the Museum of Northern Arizona, among others. Hoyesva’s work is

    known for a highly realistic style including fluted feathers, deep textile folds, and

    detailed hands and fingers (Schaff, 287).
