Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory
My name is Rebecca Maracle, I was born and raised on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, where I reside with my family. I am a member of the Haudenosaunee, the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy.
By the well-guided teachings of my Grandparents, Parents, Aunties and Uncles, I learned at an early age to respect Mother Earth and all she has to offer us. I attribute my creative talents to Creator and to the guidance and training received from my grandparents and parents especially. I am the fourth generation in my family to continue this legacy. I was taught to pass along my heritage and my beliefs through my traditional style of artwork. I have won numerous awards, and my artwork can be found in private collections around the world. I am humbled and never take for granted the artistic ability Creator has given me. It is very important for me to share my heart through the work I create. It is my desire for people to take the time to experience the strength and beauty in nature and to see the creativity of my people and my culture captured in my original designs.
