I’m Haudensaunee (People of the Longhouse) Mohawk woman of the Bear Clan from Kahnawake, Quebec, Canada.
Each time I went to the Longhouse for ceremonies I kept envisioning Iroquois art. My creativity encompasses painting, beading, woodburning, Iroquois pottery, moose hair embroidery and tufting. Iroquois traitional regalia and pow-wow regalia. Sometimes I feel like a storyteller because I spend much time sharing our Iroquois stories behind my work. I make it my mission in life to listen and absorb these stories from our elders and I also research many old books. It made me proud to be Mohawk and has greatly influenced my art. I dont want these stories to die. I make it a visual interpretaion from them in the hopes to keep it alive for future generations.
