Emily Porter, Indigenous Naturalist and Adventurer
Emily is an Indigenous naturalist and adventurer from the Six Nations Indian Reserve, where her family roots come from the Iroquois Confederacy, or Haudensaunee. Emily’s family clan is the deer, who is characterized as an “intuitive leader”. Much like the deer she is agile, perceptive, and a natural and inspiring trailblazer.
Emily grew up immersed in the Carolinian forest, or as she knew it, her backyard. Emily learned how to interact with the environment through the values she was taught by the Elders, and she continued to uphold this knowledge as her passions for exploration and adventure expanded. Through these teachings Emily has developed a unique connection to the Canadian landscape and truly rich experiences in her outdoor pursuits.
Emily is now sharing the knowledge and stories of her culture to provide a unique interpretation of the natural world. Emily believes that interpretation from an Indigenous perspective connects the history of the land to modern day Canada and is the foundation to facilitating an authentic relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
