E. Pauline Johnson was a powerful wordsmith who traveled the North American continent sometimes in vaudeville-esque stages to Britain. Here she confronted the king of England. She used her voice and words as a weapon against the effects of colonization. Her mother was British and her father was a Mohawk chief from the Six Nations of the Grand River. When she passed away her influence was strong and wide. She was a proud Mohawk/British woman. Her capacity for change towards the perception of Indigenous people in North America was the beginning for a long struggle.
