Wabanoonkwe originates from a small Indian Reservation in Northwestern Ontario Canada, Iskatewizaagegan #39, formerly known as Shoal Lake but is registered with Wabaseemoong also known as Whitedog. Raised by a single mother, living in low income status, Wabanoonkwe started her enterpenurial journey early.
Wabanoonkwe's journey began in 2007, after selling her clothing line, "Dinawo" (based out of Southern Ontario, Canada) After taking a break from the entrepreneurial world she re-entered by customizing Native American Indian inspired beadwork. At that time, beading was just a hobby, but it quickly developed into a passion for designing fashionable contemporary accessories. Her theme was "Where Trend Meets Tradition"! By 2009, Turquoise Soul was featured across North America at Pow Wows, Trade Shows, Fashion Shows etc.
The Turquoise Soul line has been proudly displayed throughout various magazines, blogs, social medias such as:
Beyond Bucksin, Native Max Magazine, Urban Native Mag, APTN, CBC, NAMW 2013.
Our Mission at Turquose Soul was to ensure that every person we interact with will be inspired by our radiating positivity and contagious enthusiasm, which is expressed through our ground breaking style. We've married the idea of beauty, photography, art and fashion to create a "One Stop Glam Package"! We took pride in knowing that we helped people with various backgrounds highlighting their beauty through our motto "Let Create The Vision Together".
This now leads us to the newest development of Wabanoonkwe's vision.
Wabanoonkwe started as a passionate, self-taught makeup artist who mastered her skills through top of the line training with Paul Mitchell Academy and M.A.C cosmetics. With the recent completion of Xtreme Lash Certification and Ellabana Certification Wabanoonkwe has now become an Instructor. Her vision is to continuously evolve with the beauty and fashion industry making her the epitome of an Image Professional and a Beauty Educator.
One of the most valued programs that Wabanoonkwe developed is a Class for Youth and Women enhancing thier natural beauty by "Self Love through the Arts". It's an inspirational empowerment program that
