Nora Marks Dauenhauer (born 1927) is an American poet and short-story writer and a scholar of the language and traditions of the Tlingit aboriginal nation in Alaska, of which she is a member.

Nora Marks was born May 8, 1927, the first of sixteen children of Emma Marks (1913—2006) of Yakutat, Alaska, and Willie Marks (1902—1981), a Tlingit from near Juneau, Alaska. Nora's Tlingit name at birth was Keix?wni. Following her mother in the Tlingit matrilineal system, she is a member of the Raven moiety of the Tlingit nation, of the Lukaax?.di clan, and of the Shaka Ht or Canoe Prow House, from Alsek River. Emma's maternal grandfather had been Frank Italio (1870—1956), an informant to the anthropologist Frederica de Laguna whose knowledge was incorporated into De Laguna's 1972 ethnography of the northern Tlingit, Under Mount St. Elias.

She earned a degree in anthropology and, with her husband Richard Dauenhauer, a poet and translator, she has co-edited the Sealaska Heritage Foundation's highly regarded Classics of Tlingit Oral Literature series.
