Kahente Horn-Miller is the coordinator for the Kahnawà:ke Legislative Coordinating Commission, which oversees the legislative development process based in ancient Haudenosaunee principles of consensus. She also is a sessional lecturer at Concordia and McGill universities.
An active member of the Kahnawà:ke community, Kahente researches and writes on issues that are relevant to her work and academic interests, such as Indigenous methodologies and Indigenous women. Her governance work and community-based research involves interpreting Haudenosaunee culture and bringing new life to old traditions and practices.
Kahente continues to work with the research advisory for the Kahnawà:ke Diabetes Prevention Project, along with writing and publishing in her areas of interest, most notably her recent work on participatory democracy and Sky Woman’s story.
It is through her teaching that Kahente challenges students to learn about her culture and about themselves as humans, which in the long term will foster relationships between Indigenous and non-native peoples that will go beyond the written word and the classroom and research settings.
