The E Pauline Johnson memorial is a memorial to the poet and performer Emily Pauline Johnson (1861-1913). Her mother was English and her father was a Mohawk chief. She would perform partially in modern attire and partially in first nations attire. Her poems were publisted.
She moved to Vancouver in 1909 and continued writing. She wrote articles for the Daily Province newspaper. She was friends with Chief Joe Capilano who told her of the legends of the Squamish people which included many sites in Stanley Park.
She is most remembered now with naming Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park because it disappeared during low tide!
Annually, around March, a fantastic local guide, Jolene Cumming, gives a walking tour about Pauline Johnson. In 2017, the tour takes place on March 5, 2017 and costs $10. For more information go to our Events Calendar page.
