Emily Charmaine Coon is Kanien’keha:ha, a member of the wolf clan, and from Kenhte:ke (also known as Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory). She completed her MA in Child and Youth Care at the University of Victoria where she focused on her contemporary Haudenosaunee identity, the practical resurgence of sken:nen and digital ways of (re)mapping settler-occupied spaces with Indigenous knowledges. She received her BA in Psychology from the University of Waterloo.


Emily’s teaching interests include: interrupting the permanence of settler colonialism, radically re-thinking how we presence Indigenous knowledges, stories and desire in our classrooms, and dreaming about creative ways to build decolonial futures.
