Jaime Koebel is a knowledgeable and experienced educator who will walk you through parts of downtown Ottawa to point out local landmarks and stories of interest from an Indigenous perspective. Throughout the spring, summer and fall, Jaime will be giving a variety of Indigenous Walks on a regular basis. For more information about Indigenous Walks contact Jaime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jaime is an Otipemsiwak/Nehiyaw (Métis/Cree) woman originally from Lac La Biche, Alberta living on unceded Algonquin Territory (Ottawa, ON) since 2000. She was motivated to do the walks for many reasons including education purposes, reconciliation purposes and for fun!
Jaime’s confidence to do the walk came from her time as an Educator at the National Gallery of Canada during the “Sakahàn – International Indigenous Art” exhibition where she gave art tours through the lens of the Indigenous experience in Canada and around the world.
