Janet Rogers (Mohawk/Tuscarora from the Six Nations Indian reserve in Ontario), a writer who lives in British Columbia, will research the writings and cultural material of E. Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake, 1861–1913). During the late 19th and early 20th century, Miss Johnson, a Mohawk/English poet from Six Nations, turned her poems into stage presentations. Janet's proposed community project is to provide a presentation of poetry readings and video projections of Miss Johnson's objects in Vancouver, where Johnson spent the last years of her life.
