Jaime Koebel is excited to be able to bring Indigenous Walks to Ottawa. She is a knowledgeable and experienced educator who is also an artist, a mother and a dancer. Throughout the seasons, Jaime gives walks, looks for partnerships, trains guides and advocates for local Indigenous heritage.

Jaime is an Apeetagosan/Nehiyaw (Métis/Cree) woman originally from Lac La Biche, Alberta living on unceded Anishinaabe Territory (Ottawa, ON) since 2000. She was motivated to do the walks for many reasons, however, her confidence to do the walks came from her time as an Educator at the National Gallery of Canada during the“Sakahàn – International Indigenous Art” exhibition in 2013 where she gave educational art tours through the lens of the Indigenous experiences in Canada and around the world. | (613) 290-8597
