One thing I always knew I had to do was presentations. Thats how this whole book thing started...speaking to the people. The responses I had back then motivated and compelled me to write.

Pre-release I did some key notes, and was told by the organizers, and that I'm worth it. I always used to speak for tobacco and a gift. It started becoming overwhelming, and I realized it started to take time away from my family.

Now, I do presentations and put every ounce of heart I can put into them. Each time its unique. I can be speaking to a domestic violence to then speaking to a high up government organization. I had some elders watch one, and the next month say it was totally different. It's because I follow my heart with the crowd.

I do presentations on my story, with a smaller cultural component.

My other presentation covers ceremonies, protocols, and how beautiful indigenous culture is.

I enjoy speaking, and making connections with people in the crowd. Its nerve racking, but worth it!
