Niio Perkins Bio

Niio Perkins specialized in traditional and contemporary Iroquois beadwork. Niio translates her skill into handmade jewelry and clothing with signature floral motifs.

Creating raised beadwork is Niio's way of honoring the unique gifts passed down through generations of Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse), and forging a legacy of cultural expression through design. Influenced by the beauty of ceremony and inspired by feminine energy, her creative aesthetic fuses traditional attire with a tough, but dignified attitude for a distinctive look. Handmade in the heart of Akwesasne Mohawk Territory, Niio's collections are like stories, thoughtfully woven into dress.
