Conferences: workshops/performance bookings

Over the years, I have been invited to many First Nations communities accross Canada and the United States to perform and give workshops at various conferences. (ie. youth conf., women in wellness conf., addictions conf.). I have also participated in school tours, where communities brought me into their territory and set up a schedule for me to visit First Nations schools to talk to and sometimes to perform for the children/youth/post-secondary students about my singing career and the music industry from an Aboriginal perspective. I have often been labelled a 'Role Model", but am not entirely comfortable with the stereotype associated with that slogan. ROLE MODEL: what the hell do i know anyway, I don't have all the answers. Truly, the more i learn, the less i know. Which is good, because then I am still able to learn and to grow. I prefer to think of myself as someone who has accumulated life experiences and has learned some things, of which I am willing to share with others. I have accomplished many of my goals, and continue to strive and work hard to achieve the rest of them. And boy oh boy, do I have some goals. Sometimes people benefit from the wisdom of others, I know that I have. So I give back to my people what was so freely given to me in the hope that if and when they are in need, my words about the things i have learned may come to their aide and help them to find a resolution to whatever it is they are struggling with. I am a certified Lifeskills Facilitator and I'm interested in songwriting workshops, how-to-break-into-the-musicbiz workshops, strengthening our youth to strengthen our future workshops, knowledge as power workshops, reclaiming our culture workshops, education as a tool to achieve our goals workshops. OK BASICALLY anything positive that allows me to participate in and contribute to empowering my beautiful First Nations brothers and sisters. Email me, cuz i'm down for it!!!! I will add some articles regarding reviews or references for past conferences/workshops i have participated in on my PRESS/REVIEWS page. Thank you
