Nika Feldman

Nika Feldman is an interdisciplinary textile artist currently completing a degree in Indigenous Liberal Studies at IAIA. Feldman was born and grew up in the Northeast as a dual citizen between the US and Canada on the unceded territory of the Piquawket and the Mi’kmaq. As a descendant of both a settler-colonial population and an immigrant population, Feldman’s maternal ancestry consists of French, English, Scottish, and Irish, while her paternal ancestry is that of Eastern European Jews. However, more pertinent to the forming of Feldman’s identity was her immediate parental influences incorporating artistic ways of being and anti-establishment ideology.
