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, Horn-Miller 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 travelled 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.
