Keli'i Eli is second generation self-taught fetish carver and stone sculptor born and raised in Zuni, New Mexico.

"My late uncle was the only carver of the family but a very successful carver. His drive is what inspired me to continue our traditions in stone carving. I am also half Hawaiian Native. Some of the fetish carvings I carve have some influences from my Hawaiian roots. As time goes on, I plan to dig deeper in both my Zuni and Hawaiian cultures capturing life in stone."
