Storytelling has been around since the beginning of time, long before prehistoric man could utilize words to tell his stories; he would mime his epic tales of mammoth hunts, to the members of his clan, as they sat around the fire. Young and old would be totally captivated by the sounds and the gestures of the storyteller, as the shadows he created on the walls of the cave, would amplify the magnitude of his exploits. The leaders of these tribes had the power to inspire his people to move mountains.

Do you have any mountains to move?

CHILDREN

Some of the most memorable lessons in life come from stories. Meaningful stories teach children important life lessons and promote positive precepts. They teach about goodness and courage, generosity and perseverance, love and acceptance…inspiring children to follow their hearts motivated by the exploits of multiple heros from legends and fables.

In ojibway, children are called whabung which means our future. I truly believe in the magic of storytelling to inspire children about ecology…ethnic diversity…cultural differences…interfaith connectedness…

I tell stories for children of all ages.

I also give Storytelling workshops to teenagers to inspire them to tell their stories.
