Marlana's Story: Marlana Thompson is a Mohawk from the Wolf Clan. She was born and raised in Akwesasne. She has been sewing, beading and creating pieces of art since she was seven years old, mainly for herself for ceremonies and powwows and now does it full time under her label Okwa:ho Creations. Marlana incorporates all the life elements in her works of art, combining traditional touches with the styles of today.

Many of Marlana’s works have been showcased in fashion shows during the Toronto Sky Dome Powwow, in the Museum in Bonne Germany, a museum in NY, and the Akwesasne International Powwow also well as local fashion and art shows. Marlana sets up at powwows and art shows in both the US and Canada. One of her specialties is working with her clients and coming up with designs to reflect that person individuality and spirit with the use of various mediums.

Wrong earrings sent after a 2 week wait

The earrings are very pretty but they aren’t the ones I ordered. Communication was very bad, I was not asked if I wanted a different or similar pair before it was sent. I waited over a week before having to contact Manitobah about shipping status. I was told the earrings were in Calgary at a store and then I was told they were in Toronto. It was very confusing and frustrating, esp for my first experience. They did provide a discount code for another purchase but I’m nervous to even buy again after this experience. I kept the earrings anyway as I love them too, and I’m glad the proceeds are paid towards the artist.
