She:kon! Hello! My name is Cara Loft and I am the Professor of Indigenous Determinants of Health at Humber College in Toronto, ON. I am a proud Mohawk (Kanienkehake) woman from Tyendinaga (Kehn: teke) First Nation who currently resides in Kitchener, On. I am a proud Indigenous hand drum carrier and traditional song keeper. I am also a dog mom to an English Cocker Spaniel named Chloe. I graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with a BSc in Health Sciences in 2013 and a MA in Cultural Analysis and Social Theory in 2018. In addition to my role as professor, I also facilitate community development through arts projects like singing, drumming, sewing, photography, and poetry. Within my professional practice as a teacher, I strive to bridge understanding between Indigenous, and non-Indigenous, people through education and music.
