Artist Statement:

My art is a replica of the early Haudenosaunee culture, specifically how “corn” and “corn husk” where utilized among my people. The Seneca cornhusk dolls I create are made entirely of cornhusk and are a finished product after a long intricate process of twisting, tying and sculpting. They are then fashioned with fabric and beads which tell a story of a particular era.

My goal is to get an appreciation for both the art form, and the way in which it is learned, preserved from generation to generation. Everyone has the ability to expand and give these traditions their own style/ twist/ interpretations.
I was gifted this crafting ability not only from my Creator but also from my late grandmother Mrs. Lillian Kane. She took the time to teach me the legend and lessons behind the dolls. – Nya Weh
