Cultural Story Teller, Educator, Speaker and Author
Thank you for visiting my site.
I hope you will enjoy the books and services offered here.
Behind me, in the photo, is the Grand Monadnock Mountain. It is the most climbed mountain in the Americas with more than 100,000 climbers each year. It is more than that. It is a spiritual gathering place for people. I often refer to her as Mona and she is my friend. Her Native American name is Chi Manidou'Nok meaning Great Spirit Place. I lived here on this mountain at Monadnock State Park for nine years. In the park I was a Park Ranger, Interpreter/story teller, Camp Host and Wilderness Responder. I maintained an area of the park to honor this special place with a ceremonial fire, medicine healing lodge and areas for native and cultural gatherings. These things were done to protect Mona.
My first book, White Mocs on the Red Road ~ Walking Sprit in a Native Way, is uniquely presented to aid people in gaining insight to the mysteries of the Elder teachings of the Traditional Native American.
Articles I write are about experiences that have occurred as I walk this path called life. These experiences are enhanced by the influence of Native American traditional teachings.
As a Story Teller I offer insight to cultural values and personal ethics to aid people in finding ways to improve their lives. The intent of my work is to encourage awareness of cultural enrichment and protection of the environment.
My white heritage is enhanced by ancient teachings we all once had. I walk a red road in order to better understand the original teachings of all people.
