POTTS, Robin grew up on Bear Island, a small reserve on Lake Temagami. Robin is a certified teacher and currently works in her community for the Temagami First Nation as a coordinator for 2 youth-focused summer programs. Her passion is to promote and develop culture-based experiential learning opportunities to reconnect with the traditional knowledge of her people, the land and the water. At the age of 13 she attended Wabun, a wilderness canoe camp and her two children, Kylie & Brian also attended the camp for several summers. The best family time was always in the canoe and camping on traditional routes and beautiful rivers.
