Roger Parish, Taioroniote “blue skies”, is Mohawk Wolf Clan from Akwesasne Reservation. Roger is a jeweler, printmaker, papermaker, and sculptor. Popular are his dichroic glass pendants. This non-translucent glass is created by stacking layers of glass and micro-layers of metals or oxides. He also fashions distinctive sterling silver and gemstone bolo ties and pendants. Parish also transforms paper fibers such as gampi and kozo into simulated animal skins, and is perhaps best known for those which appear to contain an embedded tree. His prints focus on ancient Native images. A number of his works feature the Hiawatha wampum belt design which stands for the five original Iroquois Nations.
