Red Shawl Campaign

The Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre’s Red Shawl Campaign will be held from Oct. 2-4, 2023. This campaign recognizes and honours the lost lives of Indigenous Woman and Girls and brings awareness to the issues of violence, injustice and systemic barriers that have given rise to a crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, in Canada.

A symbol of protection, the red shawl brings healing as we seek action and move toward justice for our lost sisters and their loved ones. This year, we will honour and reflect with this three-day campaign, through a Red Shawl exhibit and a variety of community events. Please join us in honouring those we have lost.

Dr. Kahente Horn-Miller

Dr. Kahente Horn-Miller (Kanien:keha’ka/Mohawk) is an Associate Professor in Indigenous Studies and holds the inaugural position of Associate Vice President Indigenous Teaching, Learning and Research at Carleton University which supports the hiring and retention of Indigenous faculty, promotes the development of Indigenous pedagogical tools, co-teaching models and Indigenous-focused learning spaces, and guides the Ānako Indigenous Research Institute and other research initiatives.

She currently coordinates the development of Collaborative Indigenous Learning Bundles in response to the TRC Calls to Action. The Bundles are proving an effective model for engaging faculty, students, and staff in Indigenous/Canadian history while undoing troubled relations and opening eyes to Indigenous pedagogical practices. Horn-Miller also is a Co-Chair on the Carleton University Strategic Initiatives Committee which developed a renewed Indigenous Initiatives strategy called the Kinamagawin Learning Together Report.

Her teaching practice, published writing and performance/storytelling centers in the Haudenosaunee philosophy of feminine Mother Law, bringing forth a way of engaging with the world in a relationship of respect, reciprocity and balance through ethical research, consensus-based decision making, and women centred Indigenous knowledge. She is a 2023 3M National Teaching Fellow.
