About Carolynne Crawley

Carolynne has Mi'kmaw, Black and Irish ancestry and is from the East Coast, known today as Nova Scotia. She is dedicated to social and environmental justice and supporting Indigenous led community work related to food sovereignty and food security. Carolynne is passionate about reconnecting people with the land, waters, and all beings as there is no separation between us. From many Indigenous perspectives 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 based upon Indigenous knowledge that decolonize existing interactions with the land and with each other.

She also shares Indigenous life ways such as bird language and harvesting ‘wild’ foods and medicines from the land.

As well as being on the team at Miinikaan, Carolynne is founder of Msit No’kmaq, which means “All My Relations” in Mi’kmaw. Msit No’kmaq aims to support people in reconnecting with themselves, each other, and the land, waters, and all beings through land-based workshops, talks, walks and retreats.
