Over 50 years of contact with the history and culture of the First Nations. Understanding the spirituality, family units and governance before contact with Europeans as well as the results during and after contact up to and including today. I have been extremely fortunate to have been guided through their oral history that was coupled with other written sources, giving respect to both, and producing trusted and reliable resources for others to use. For many decades I have lectured to all grade levels, mentored educators and have been a presenter/speaker at 100's of venues.
Activity and coaching style interwoven with well placed humor.
