Roxanne Swentzell grew up sculpting, making pottery, building with adobe, and gardening.  She was born in 1962 in Taos NM, into a family of Santa Clara Pueblo Artists (Naranjos).

She built a solar adobe house by hand for her and her children at Santa Clara Pueblo.  During this time, Roxanne was introduced to Permaculture and started the non-profit, Flowering Tree Permaculture Institute in 1989 with others.  


Soon it became obvious that Roxanne’s ties to the Pueblo culture steered the Institute into cultural preservation and ways to become more self-sufficient.  She published, “Our Home” an experimental place in sustainable life-ways as well as her latest on the diet of her people, “The Pueblo Food Experience” Museum of NM Press.
