We Offer Specialized Tribal Government Workshops - LUCENTREE

Life is About Choices.

During that time, I studied both arenas intimately. Today, I use that knowledge and energy, problem solving “internal-tribal-issues”, and making the world a better place. In this moment, my heart is full and I'm at peace: my commitment to the Greater Indian Good, has everything to do with my harmony.

As a former Tribal Operations Officer for Indian Affairs, I am intimately aware of the process of Government-to-Government Relations—what that often means—and the potential of would it could be. For the past decade, I’ve worked on the Tribal-side (as both, a Tribal Employee & Tribal Councilman) and on the Fed-side (in the areas of Self-Determination & Tribal Ops).

We will examine our own lives, and the internal and external communities that we occupy. This our brand of cultural awareness training; a great seminar for individuals who are new to the Tribe and are limited in their exposure of Indigenous cultures.

We create opportunities that change peoples live. Our contribution to healing and wellness, as it pertains to your tribal citizens, is by teaching them intricate skills and methodologies of meditation. Through meditation, we can reduce stress, enhance our immune systems, and empower ourselves, and so much more. Think silence, think breathing, think talking circle, think singing, think the power of our Ancestors…that’s how we do meditation.

It’s my belief, that most major mishaps—especially working with other people—has to do with miscommunication. Becoming a healthy communicator is one of the most important skill any human being can have. Learn about verbal (and non-verbal) communication, symbolic value, and energetics. In this series of community based trainings, we examine the notion of emotional intelligence.
