Robert Holler is half German and half from a First Nation. Here is his story:
My Father was born in Friedberg Germany in 1934, and he moved to Kanada in 1960 where he met my mother, a Native woman from the Bear clan, Ojibway Nation, i was born April 20th, 1966 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
My beating German heart coupled with my first Nation’s skin colour has been somewhat of an anomaly for me; I always felt i was too brown for Germany and too German for First Nations as per my work ethic and driven nature.
Learning to combine both cultures inside me has been a life long journey. Coupled with a series of learning experiences, i have always embraced my German Culture, but it has only been the last 6 years that development of both cultures existing together has been a formula for moving forward.
As a result I returned to Schooling at a Nature College, got elected Chief of Student council, formed a basketball and foods program. After college I kept the basketball program going and started a non-profit society called Nations Warriors Wellness Society right here in Vancouver, utilizing the strengths of both cultures to co-exist together. Citing both the German and Native Nations are tribal by nature and can work together in harmony to create magnificent opportunities in the community.
