Kahente Horn-Miller (Kanienkehaka)
Associate Professor, School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies
Kahente Horn-Miller (Kahente means “she walks ahead”) (Kanien:keha’ka/Mohawk) is available to discuss the heritage, contributions and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. As an active member of her community, Horn-Miller is a figurative bridge builder as she continues to research and write on issues that are relevant to her work and academic interests such as Indigenous methodologies, Indigenous women, identity politics, colonization, Indigenous governance, and consensus-based decision-making for her community and our wider society.
Her governance work and community-based research involves interpreting Haudenosaunee culture and bringing new life to old traditions. She continues to work with the research advisory for the Kahnawà:ke Diabetes Prevention Project along with writing and publishing in her areas of interest. It is the fruit of her endeavours as a Mohawk, an educator, and a mother that she brings into her interactions with Kahnawà:ke:ronon (people of Kahnawà:ke) and the academic community.
