Iroquois Beadwork

Stevens Point resident Karen Ann Hoffman is both a student and teacher of Iroquois raised beadwork. It’s an ancient art form practiced by the five nations that make up the Iroquois Confederacy, including the Oneida. Beads are sown to create intricate patterns with a three dimensional effect. Hoffman says its use of velvet and layered beads separates it from other Native American art forms.
