Feedback from 2021!

"I appreciated the connections that were drawn between disabilities and the limitations that various Native Americans are faced with constantly. Jim's honesty about 'American' History was very moving and relatable."

"Thank you for this informative and moving presentation, for sharing both the painful history that many are unaware of the truth, and for sharing hope for our future!"
