Christine, "Aggie", Henderson-Poncho was born in 1973. Aggie was raised in the Acoma Pueblo but is half Apache and half Pima. Aggie began experimenting with pottery at the age of 15. She was inspired by her mother-in-law, Marilyn Ray-Henderson, who is one of the finest clay sculpture artists hand making storytellers today.
Aggie specializes in hand making traditional storytellers with natural paints and clays. She also makes a wide variety of clay sculptures and will on occasion paint on ceramic pottery. Marilyn Ray-Henderson taught Aggie the fundamentals of pottery making. Aggie has perfected her pottery making skills through the years. Aggie signs her pottery: Aggie, Acoma NM, followed by the year the pottery was made. Aggie is related to Crystal Poncho, Tina Poncho (sisters), Chris S. Martinez (mother) and Yolanda Paytiamo (aunt).
