Much like a thumbprint, our voice is a unique expression of identity and belonging. Our voice, both the literal sound as well the artistic expression contained in story serve as a living connection with our ancestors and to the generations to come. Join us as Gemma shares with us her experiences working with story and song in traditional healing programs for Native American and indigenous communities.
Special Giveaway: Gemma will be giving away one of her giclee, fine art prints. Perfect as a gift for you or for gift giving. To qualify, sign up here to receive email reminders and then be on the live call.
