Multidisciplinary Kanien'kehá:ka mother, artist, craftswoman, scholar-activist, and dancer Jodi Lynn Maracle is currently pursuing her PhD at the University of Buffalo (SUNY) in Buffalo, NY centering her research on Haudenosaunee midwifery, birth work, dance, language and sovereignty. She most recently completed textile based works for group show Indian Giver: Truth Tellings and Narratives of Representation with Setsuné in Toronto, ON. Of her accomplishments, she is most proud of her ongoing work to become a fluent second language Kanien'kéha (Mohawk) speaker and to hear these original sounds come from her toddler son's mouth.
