Carolynne Crawley, founder of Msit No’kmaq, is Mi'kmaw, Black and Irish. She is from Mi’kma’ki territory also known today as Nova Scotia. But Tkaronto has been her home for the past fifty years. She grew up with a deep love and respect for the land and all beings. She is currently in the process of documenting some of her family’s stories of being in relationship with the land such as harvesting medicines and the burning of lands in early spring.
Carolynne is dedicated to social and environmental justice. She is also passionate about reconnecting people with the land, waters, and all beings as there is no separation between us. From many Indigenous perspectives around the Earth they are all our relations to be treated with as much love, respect, and reciprocity as we do with our human loved ones. Carolynne leads workshops that support the development and strengthening of healthy and reciprocal relationships and creates opportunities for reflection and change. She also shares Indigenous life ways such as understanding bird language and harvesting ‘wild’ foods and medicines from the land.
Carolynne is one of the founders of the new initiative Turtle Protectors in collaboration with Indigenous Elders and community members. This project focuses upon advocating, supporting, and protecting our turtle relatives and kin.
She is a certified Forest Therapy Guide. She was also a Mentor and Trainer of the practice for five years. She leads in person and virtual forest therapy walks, facilitates webinars and retreats for corporations, organizations, and the general public.
