Kahontakwas, Diane Longboat is from the Mohawk Nation, Turtle Clan, a traditional teacher from Six Nations Grand River Territory, Canada. As a ceremonial leader, educator, teacher of Indigenous spiritual ways and healer, Diane's voice speaks to the heart of spiritual renewal and peace, through the ways of Living Spirit and spiritual activism.

The focus of Soul of the Mother is nation building among First Nations to activate the spiritual nature of children, youth and families through ceremonies, culture, song and language as the building blocks for nationhood for the new generation. Indigenous wisdom is now called forth in the world to guide all sectors of human development to restore balance in the world so Human Beings can live by Sacred Spiritual Law and the Natural Laws of Mother Earth. The hoop of humanity is a great circle of seats for every human being.

Since the lighting of the Sacred Fire of Peace in 1994 and the founding of Soul of the Mother, Diane and her team of spiritual leaders have served as international ambassadors for the creation of global communities of peace builders and spiritual activists. Diane is an educator with a Masters degree in Education. Her four decades of work have focused on building student services in Universities, research, teaching University courses on Indigenous history and contemporary issues, promoting jurisdiction over First Nations educatio as well as developing culturally responsive education. Research has also formed part of Diane's work to show the importance of culture and language as the cornerstones of Indigenous education for student achievement while contributing to building a human family of a higher consciousness of peace.
