Arianna Lauren

Arianna, a proud member of the Quw'utsun'/Cowichan Tribes, channels her ancestral knowledge and the healing power of Northwest native plants into Quw'utsun' Made. Born in her village of Samuna, on Vancouver Island within unceded Coast Salish Territory, she honors her heritage by preserving traditional medicine practices and creating handcrafted apothecary products. Her work extends to offering workshops, sharing business wisdom with elders and youth, and reviving the ancestral practice of hand poke tattooing within her shop, O Siiem. Arianna believes in the profound connection between the natural world and modern-day healing, and she strives to guide others on this path towards balance. Currently, Arianna lives and works in southern Tiwa Territory in what is now known as Albuquerque, NM.
