Shelley Niro was born in Niagra
Falls, New York, and is a member of the Turtle Clan of the Mohawk.
She grew up on the Six Nations Reserve and is a graduate of the
Ontario College of Art, where she received an Honors Fine Arts
degree in painting and sculpture. Niro began working in video
several years ago and her first film, It Starts With a Whisper,
co-directed with Anna Gronau, has screened around the world. Storytelling
through film and installation art, Shelley creates roles for Native
women that give them a voice of strength and community. She has
exhibited widely and her work often addresses questions of identity
and how it is constructed by the self and others. She has recently
completed an MFA at the University of Western Ontario and currently
lives in Brantford, Ontario.
