  • About the Artist


    Mohawk           Turtle Clan   


    Jacobs (Karoniaktahke) is an activist, broadcaster, musician, poet and visual artist based in Santa Fe. Originally from Akwesasne, his collage-paintings combine the quilt-making traditions of his Mohawk mother and grandmother with elements from NM.  

    Using his mother’s calico scraps and commercial packaging from American Spirit cigarettes and Land-O-Lakes butter wrappers, he developed a kind of decoupage technique, gluing and varnishing the fabric to create his art.  Jacobs is a graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts and holds a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute.
