My site is as accurate as possible and is subject to change if I find or I am in receipt of information or updates that are verifiable. If you do not agree with what is written on any of the pages, and if a civilized and informed discussion is not possible, I suggest you exit the site immediately. Oh, and by the way, I am NOT an INDIAN.
Also, I occasionally have someone suggest that to be taken seriously I should remove my animated figures, reduce all the colour, in other words,'vanilla-ize' the site so it looks more professional. I am a lover of colour, animation and a lot of humour. After forty-five years as a professional Indigenous artist/educator, writer, if you can't take me seriously, removing fun little animated graphics isn't going to change that. Stand Tall, Sing Loud, Drum Proud. See y'all at the Big Drums. Cheers.
