Wennekerakon Tiewishaw

I am a Mohawk artist from Kanehsatake, where I grew up in a traditional family that instilled a strong cultural identity and pride for my heritage. I want to help in the preservation of Indigenous knowledge and languages to serve future generations.

I graduated from Concordia University with distinction in the Child Studies program and went on to work in private daycare. This is where I discovered my passion for working with children and exploring learning through art.

Today, I channel that passion into making educational art for Indigenous youth to reconnect with their language, history, and culture. I also enjoy making pet portraits.
