Ashley Wahiaronkwas Morris

Meet Board Member Ashley Wahiaronkwas Morris


Ashley Wahiaronkwas Morris is Wolf Clan and of the Mohawk Nation. She is from the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory in Quebec, Canada, where she was born, raised and continues to reside.

She is a graduate of Concordia University's B.A. Sociology program and is looking into furthering her education in the environmental field. Recent projects include initiatives in the preservation of the monarch butterfly, for which she was presented this year with a Mother Earth Environmental Awareness Award by the American Indian Society of Washington D.C. She has also embarked on the most important aspect of her life as Ista (mother) to her daughter; and has focused much of her time on her language and culture, ensuring it is being passed on to the next generation. 

Ashley's areas of interest include cultural revitalization and the promotion of post-secondary education among Aboriginal youth. Being a Native woman, she has had the opportunity to see first hand how pursuing her education will not only be of benefit to herself but also has provided her with the tools to work with her community and assist with Native youth across Turtle Island (North America).
