Hi there – I like to keep my membership current. In terms of professional development in 2023 I have lead tours here in Banff, in Quebec, in Ottawa, in Winnipeg and Mexico. I also lectured on tourism and Canadian history for 7 days at Saginaw Valley State University – I have been hired by that school to set up a tourism train certificate program.
In terms of personal learning and growth, I was honoured to take a Siksika group to Winnipeg to perform “New Blood” – a powerful theatre piece tackling the process of colonization and recovery. We can absolutely host this performance in the Bow Valley!
I returned home two days ago after being in Ottawa with First Nations from Manitoba (pre-law students) and we met with Michelle O’Bonsawin – the first Indigenous justice on the Supreme Court!
I would love to have a chat with you at some point – I’m home for two whole week!
Thank you for everything you do.
