Carley is one of the artists participating in Woodland Cultural Centre’s Virtual Face Mask Auction, Ga:hǫh ne’ hni’ ga:howe:kso/Covered and Uncovered. The auction is in response to the new realities created by the global coronavirus pandemic impacting so many Indigenous communities across the country, with 50% of proceeds shared with artists and 50% to support Woodland Cultural Centre programs, specifically School Visits & Educational Programming and Exhibitions.

 

I am Cayuga Nation, Turtle clan from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. Graduated from Sheridan College’s Visual and Creative Art’s Advanced Diploma program.

I am working full-time at Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford as the Save the Evidence Coordinator, facilitating the fundraising that has gone behind the Save the Evidence Campaign to preserve the Mohawk Institute Residential School. I am currently on maternity leave. Here my connection to my cultural roots, my commitment to community involvement and my continued​ artistic development nurtures me and creates a platform for my voice as a contemporary First Nations woman.

Most recently I have been working on my personal beading business.
