About Kaniehtiio: Kaniehtiio Horn is a gifted actress, writer and director whose creative versatility and talent have created a cult following. She grew up on the Kahnawake Mohawk reserve west of Montreal where she still resides today as a young mother and community advocate. Horn is best known for her beloved performance as Tanis in the critically acclaimed Canadian comedy series, LETTERKENNY. Hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the “best sitcoms of all time.” Her scene-stealing work recently earned her the 2022 Canadian Screen Award for “Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role in a Comedy Series.” She later made her mark offscreen by lending her expertise as a consulting producer for the series’ spinoff, SHORESY – streaming on Hulu and Crave. She stars alongside Anna Kendrick in the Lionsgate thriller, ALICE, DARLING. The film recently premiered to much acclaim at the 2022 TIFF, with Horn herself receiving critical praise for her compelling role and onscreen presence. Most recently, Horn was in the sophomore seasons of the Peacock comedy RUTHERFORD FALLS (from Sierra Teller Ornelas, Mike Schur and Ed Helms) and in the gritty FX original series RESERVATION DOGS, (the brainchild of Sterlin Harjo and Academy Award-winner Taika Waititi). Her notable on-screen credits include Fox 21/Nat Geo’s BARKSKINS, Amazon’s THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE, Netflix / Gaumont’s HEMLOCK GROVE and the action/thriller feature MOHAWK. Horn wrote, directed, and starred in the short film, THE SHACK, which collected awards on the short film circuit. Upcoming, she will star in and direct SEEDS, a feature film she wrote and developed in association with Telefilm Canada and The Indigenous Screen Office.
