Emily Pauline Johnson (10 March 1861 – 7 March 1913), also known by her Mohawk stage name Tekahionwake, was a Canadian poet, author and performer who was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Her father was a hereditary Mohawk chief of mixed ancestry and her mother was an English immigrant.
Johnson was notable for her poems, short stories, and performances that celebrated her mixed-race heritage drawing from both Indigenous and English influences. She is most known for her books of poetry The White Wampum (1895), Canadian Born (1903), Flint and Feather (1912) and her collections of stories Legends of Vancouver (1911), The Shagganappi (1913) and The Moccasin Maker (1913).
