Dawn Dark Mountain (Oneida of Wisconsin)

About the Artist

As a member of the Turtle Clan of the Oneida Tribe of Wisconsin, one of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois), Dark Mountain uses her watercolors and relief prints to connect traditional and present day Woodland ideas, philosophies, and stories. She notes:

Using stories and designs from my own Woodland culture, I translate traditional Iroquois beadwork designs into patterns and borders in my paintings. I also try to use the traditional meanings of different designs in creating each piece. The paintings themselves become visual stories, enhanced by the written narrative that I create for each one.
