Emotional Resiliency and COVID: An Intergenerational Indigenous Approach

Waneek Horn-Miller is a bear clan Mohawk and mother of three. She feels particularly deeply at this time that she is lucky to have come from a culture that values elders and she will share her own mother's guidance. As one of Canada’s few Indigenous Olympians, Waneek has used her passion and experiences in sport to influence Indigenous and non-Indigenous leadership towards making Sport and Wellness a community-building priority.  She has traveled extensively throughout North America as a motivational speaker sharing her journey from the front lines of the Oka Crisis to the Olympics with indigenous and non-indigenous audiences.

Register and participate in a question and answer discussion with Waneek. 

This is the first talk in Ottawa Public Library's Resiliency Speaker Series.  The talks will be also streamed on Facebook Live.
