Dextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo (born September 7, 1928, Polacca, Arizona) is a Native American potter and artist. She is the great-granddaughter of famed Hopi-Tewa potter Nampeyo (1860–1942), who revived Sikyátki style pottery at Hopi; and the daughter of Rachel Namingha (1903-1985), another notable Hopi-Tewa potter. There are now five generations of Nampeyo family potters, and Dextra Quotskuyva is arguably the best potter and painter of this extraordinarily talented family.
Dextra's students include her daughter Hisi Nampeyo (Camille Quotskuyva, born 1964 ), her nephews Les Namingha (born 1967) and Steve Lucas (Koyemsi, born 1955 ), and Loren Ami  (born 1968). Dextra's son Dan Namingha is an internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor.
In 1994 Dextra Quotskuyva was proclaimed an “Arizona Living Treasure,” and in 1998 she received the first Arizona State Museum Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2001, the Wheelwright Museum organized a 30-year retrospective exhibition of Quotskuyva's pottery, and in 2004, she received the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts Lifetime Achievement award.
