About Me

Tecumseh Ceaser is a indigenous jewelry artist and cultural consultant. He is of Matinecock Turkey clan, Shinnecock, Unkechaug, and Wampanoag descent. He has been making Art/ jewelry for 15 years, adopting the traditional medium and practice of quahog shell carving in 2016. In doing so, he continues the tradition of his ancestors who used the shells to create wampum carvings and beads, which were often used in ceremonies, regalia, Gifts, trade agreements, and treaties.

 

Tecumseh currently serves as the North American Advisor for the Global Indigenous Youth Caucus at the United Nations, where he advocates for Indigenous Americans' rights to member states, NGOs, and other indigenous nations. He has also provided cultural education to universities, museums, and institutions including St. John’s University, Socrates Sculpture Park, Flushing Town Hall, and New York University.
