Biography

Born in Kahnawake Mohawk Territory, Skawennati graduated with a BFA from Concordia University in Montreal, where she is based. She is Co-Director of Aboriginal Territories in Cyberspace (AbTeC), a research network of artists and academics who investigate and create Indigenous virtual environments. Their Skins workshops in Aboriginal Storytelling and Experimental Digital Media are aimed at empowering youth. In 2015 they launched IIF, the Initiative for Indigenous Futures.

Artistic project

As a sign of peace and recognition, OBORO is dedicating 2017 to Indigenous artists and will be opening its programming with the exhibition Tomorrow People by Skawennati. Born on Mohawk territory, which includes the Island of Montreal, Skawennati presents a new body of work composed of machinimas, machinimagraphs, photographs, and sculptures that skilfully blend history, traditions, cyberspace, and science fiction.
