Hi! My name is Kiera “Babes” Thompson, and I’m from the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation located in upstate New York. I am a new mom to my baby girl, Kahentaienton. Modeling has been a part of my life since I was eight years of age: print work, fashion shows and video. I am also a photographer and have a background working in the film industry. 2023 marks my third year walking for SWAIA Indigenous Fashion. It is always so much fun!
