An interest and deep respect for Indigenous and First Nation cultures, perspectives (views of the world), and languages began with me in childhood and has endured ever since. This interest led me to seek opportunities to learn—whether through books, classes, academic articles, art, literature or music.
My most valuable learning has come from oral tradition, the wisdom of Elders, and
from ceremonies – in other words, from direct experience.
I have been fortunate to have been associated with the Stoney Nakoda First Nation, in Morley, for over 15 years. I have also worked with individuals with diverse Indigenous identities and with both reserve and urban backgrounds.
If you are on a healing journey and think I might be of assistance to you, please feel free to contact me at my Banff office.
