Quiltmaking, Community, and Creativity
Artist Talk with Iakonikonriiosta/Sheree Bonaparte

Join us at the Iroquois Indian Museum for an illustrated artist talk with Mohawk artist and educator, Iakonikonriiosta/Sheree Bonaparte. On July 28, Sheree will share her special insights on the 40-year old quilting tradition in her Mohawk community of Akwesasne and its inseparable connection to the Akwesasne Freedom School. In addition, Sheree will discuss her personal creative process and the work of others in her community who also compose the tactile medium of fabric.
Actively involved in the quilting community, Sheree has served as an instructor at the Akwesasne Freedom School and operated the Ionkwanikonhriiosne Creative Sewing Centre for a number of years. Sheree’s quilts have been selected for display in museums in Canada and the United States where she is recognized for using original patterns and incorporating Haudenosaunee cultural designs and concepts into her work. Currently, Sheree serves as acting director at the Akwesasne Museum.
