The Canadian child actress played a North American character named Ka’kwet of an Indian indigenous group called Akwesasne. Kiawentiio Tarbell also belongs to an indigenous group, the only difference being that she is a Mohawk, an Iroquoian speaking people of the Akwesasne community among the Indian American tribes.
Born and raised in Akwesasne, Ontario, with two more elder siblings; a sister and a brother, Tarbell has expressed her pride to be on the show and for the show showcasing the real history of the indigenous people in the nineteenth century which wasn't originally in the Lucy Maud Montgomery's version.
Not to mention, Tarbell is also proud of her Mohawk heritage as she claims it on her Instagram bio. And as a Mohawk, Kiawentiio had to learn the language of Mi’kmaq people, the Indian tribe her character Ka’kwet belonged to in the fiction. But, it wasn't really a problem for her as Tarbell found a few vocabularies similar to her mother tongue and the Mikmaq's language.
