Turtle Island / Kanata / Canada


"The movement of Home for Humanity is a call into our collective vision, living into the spirit of our prophecy stories, nurturing the deeper vision of what is possible together and the heart of truth at the centre.   Naturally weaving fields and waves of change ... unferrling, waymaking, transitioning, and for me gently nudging towards planetary health transformation. I can see three of her reflections standing in the waters."


Erin, Gizhagate belongs to the crystal-clear waters of Benessai Ochininisshing, Skeleton Lake in Anishinaabe speaking lands, walking with vision and all of life in mind, sharing her Otipemisiwak, Cree-Metis, Icelandic-Isles kinship.  Erin is woven, lead faculty with the Banff Centre Indigenous leadership team, Associate Faculty for Royal Roads University, and teacher and board member for Feather Carriers: Leadership for Life Promotion and is a Director with the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.  Erin convenes for First Nations and Indigenous Leadership within the International Leadership Association, circling with the Together Institute in cultivating a Community Weaving framework and as a Fire Keeper with the World Ethic Forum.   Erin works together with many circles, and at home  bio-regionally with the Gojijing Truth and Reconciliation Roundtable and Friendship Circle and within the Bawaajigewin Dream Drum Society.  She is a land/water protector and is currently beginning her PhD pathways focusing on the role and protection of cultural - sacred places in planetary health transformation, and did her previous research through film on Reawakening the Spirit of Place in Transcending Paradigms.
