Artist Bio

Kahsenniyohstha Lauren Williams is a Mohawk artist and educator from Six Nations, Ontario, born in Toronto in 1983. She developed her passion for art and beading early, influenced by her family and community. Her work merges traditional Haudenosaunee stories with contemporary design, focusing on sacred feminine themes. Beading became a healing practice for her following a car accident, embodying her belief that stories can be woven into wearable art. Kahsenniyohstha teaches beadwork, leather work, and music to youth, passing on Indigenous knowledge. She holds an MA in Ancient History and Historiography from the University of Bristol, focusing on Haudenosaunee oral tradition.
