E Pauline Johnson (1861-1913) was a Canadian poet of mixed Mohawk and English heritage. She was a poet, writer and performer at a time when dramatic poetry readings were popular. She was one of the few female writers at the time who could make an independent living from her writings and performances. She was also the first indigenous poet to have her works published.
Tekahionwake was her Mohawk stage name.
