Teachings, Videos, Speaking

New! Youtube Videos

As a Kitchizibi Métis-Algonquin traditional knowledge keeper, educator, author and artist I'm often asked to speak at conferences and events. I also speak at schools, colleges, universities, churches, government agencies, institutions and organizations. I give presentations both inside and outside on the land. I share a wealth of the traditional Kitchizibi Métis-Algonquin knowledge I've learned over the years. And I promote the spiritual Métis-Algonquin worldview and teachings that I live my own life by. 

My new book, Quest for the Thunderbird Nest, is a wonderful way to discover the healing power of traditional storytelling. This book also shares the healing practices of thunderbird medicine in direct relation to the vision quest and personal empowerment.

My storytelling presentations give people a unique opportunity to learn the most obvious human reality which is: We're all Native to the Earth. This wise worldview is taught to us by the Four Directions of The Medicine Wheel.

The aim of my presentations is to bring needed awareness to the power of traditional knowledge by sharing Métis-Algonquin worldview and teachings. Storytelling events help our fast-paced, modern, material and technological society to understand that truly great wisdom still exists within Algonquin traditional knowledge and Indigenous worldview. Storytelling and the sharing of traditional knowledge is good medicine for us all.
