Library and Archives Canada:Pauline Johnson
Pauline Johnson from Library and Archives Canada. Daughter of Mohawk chief George Henry Martin Johnson and Englishwoman Emily Susanna Howells, Emily Pauline Johnson was born on the Six Nations Reserve in what is now known as Ontario. She had a priviledged upbringing, and many distinguished guests such as Princess Louise, Prince Arthur and Lord Dufferin visited the family home just outside of Brantford. She grew up belonging to two cultures and was mostly tutored at home. As a means of supporting herself, Pauline published some of her poems, sometimes signing them under the name Tekahionwake, emphasizing her Native heritage. She eventually began to tour across Canada and the United States reciting her poetry.
