What is the sum of: *

"If you don't book this show [Thunder Rocks: Wings of Heart], you are missing out on a fabulous addition to the
First Nations curriculum. Spoken from a Native perspective, Ms Thunderbird offered insight into things I did not know.  My students and I had a fabulous time." (Teacher, North York)
******************************************

"Shannon is passionate about bringing her peoples' story to the youth of Canada. I have observed her workshops many times...and she continues to engage our young people in a very memorable interaction. Her message is one of understanding and respect and her workshop on the teachings of the Medicine Wheel dovetail beautifully into the Character Traits teachings in our schools. Shannon is a vote for wisdom and tolerance." (L. McGregor, Foundation for Enriching Education, Avon Maitland) 

********************************

Hi Shannon, I just wanted to send you a quick note to say that I thought your presentation [Eagle Thunder: Song of Hope] was one of the best I have ever seen from a guest speaker here at Lourdes. It was so wonderful to see a whole auditorium full of teenagers dancing and singing and learning to appreciate First Nations culture while valuing themselves. Surely a small first step that we can continue moving forward. We most definitely will want to have you back. The students raved about you and Sandy--please also tell her how much we appreciate her presence."

Yvonne Runstedler, Department Head- Theology and Family Studies, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic High

"I need to tell you again how wonderful yesterday was.  The kids loved every moment and can't stop talking about it - teachers too.  I spoke to my principal and told him how amazing you are and he would love to have you come back.  We want you back for a full day in January. 

Thank you again for coming in and inspiring us.  I have been passionate about teaching native culture to my students for many years (I am algonquin/metis) and it is so wonderful to have you come in and make such an impact on students." (J. Gibson, Agnes Taylor School, Mississauga, ON)
