Dr. Samantha Boshart
Aani, my name is Samantha Boshart. I was born and raised within the Great Lakes Basin. I was
born to parents with two very different life experiences: My mother a First Nations woman
from the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation and my Father a descendant of German
Settlers. I have always been curious about the human condition and what is called natural law.
I studied Medical Science at Western University and went on to become a Family Physician
while at the same time re-connecting to Indigenous Knowledge that accelerated my own
healing. I am passionate about learning, teaching and supporting the healing of individuals,
families and nations. I hold positions as adjunct professor for the department of Family
Medicine in the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry as well as the Regional Indigenous
Cancer lead for the Southwest Regional Cancer program. I am currently working towards
establishing a First Nations Led healing team. I am a mother, an aunt, a sister, a daughter and a
granddaughter. I take care of a dog named Nimkii (thunder) a German Shepherd with an
attitude. I enjoy preparing food for my relations, swimming in lake huron, walking, yoga,
reading, singing, dancing and riding horses.
