The Woman


 Tara-Tekahentakhwa, which means “picking up,” or “holding the earth.”, is the founder of Niawen Skincare

Niawen was created, while she was recovering from cancer at age 37. In Mohawk, “Niawen” means “to give thanks” or ‘thank you.” So she was in a “giving thanks” frame of mind.

Looking to fill a need. One she felt deeply about. And one spiritually tied to a culture that isn’t represented on the shelves of Sephora. Most importantly, she knew she had to create Niawen….A line that fuses the best of nature and science (for incredible results) with the sacred power of their traditions (and their proven healing effects).

Their ancestors knew and used the spiritual healing medicinal uses of mother earth. They are honored to bring you a Native American herbal legacy that lives on thru each of their products. To have you gathered here, and join them in holding the earth — conquer whatever is thrown at us — by taking part in the new tradition that is Niawen.
