As Lou Lou la Duchesse de Rière, Lauren Ashley Jiles blends the trappings of classic burlesque with symbols of her Kahnawake Mohawk heritage. At the New Orleans Burlesque Festival she became the first Indigenous woman to be named the genre’s reigning queen. Jiles was named Canada’s no. 1 performer in 2019 and 2020, she was named the New Orleans Queen of Burlesque in 2019, and Burlesque Hall of Fame Runner second runner-up in 2019. Jiles advocates for multiple causes, notably the Native Women’s Association of Canada.
