"Hello and thank you for sharing your speech! I agree with you 100% on all levels: particularly when you reflected on attendance levels at the conference and the parallels to your own experiences. Very powerful indeed! I have saved the paper and hope…"

As a life-long Social Justice Advocate, Jodi’s education and experience reflect her interest in a broad range of conflict situations. From race relations and resource management to restorative justice programming, Jodi has been involved in many aspects of conflict resolution.
As a mixed blood Cree woman, Jodi found her work with at-risk Aboriginal youth particularly rewarding. The opportunity to use modern techniques and traditional teachings was both challenging and rewarding; the experience clearly illustrated the importance of identity and tradition for today’s youth.
In addition to her BA from the University of Victoria, Jodi is an ordained minister and parent to two wonderful children.

Dear friend "Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family.This is the teaching of our indian culture and tradition.This is a wonderful site to to know our inner self and each other and can make a world a family. We created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for any reason.But this the time to realize that we are one and naturally interconnected with each other which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of our breaths. The source is same without any discrimination of religion and boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable . We should follow the nature's rule,God has given us a human life not for destruction but to look after the wellbeing of all living life so that peace and harmony can establish in this planet.
I shall be happy if we could be a friend with harmonious relationship.
Hi Jodi, great to hear that you are in Victoria too. Would you like to meet up some time?
I did my undergrad at UVic and have just finished some classes there but I have never done a master's there. I could tell you about a couple of the profs but I don't know much about the program, sorry!
Thank you for such a wise observation. My father used to say that,"Good balance is the secret of an upright walk".
You might appreciate something I was given:
Success is to laugh often and much
To win the respect of people and the affection of children
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of friends.
Success is to appreciate beauty
To find the best in others
To leave the world a little better
Whether by a healthy child, a garden path, or a redeemed social condition
To know that one life has breathed easier because you lived.
Thanks so much for your kind words.
I am glad that you were able to go through our site.
I always believe that when people partner a miracle happens and indeed it will be a great honor for us to work together and even share more about our work.
my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
look forward to hear from you soon and thanks for your interest in Africa.
Blessings to you.
Ah, jolly nice. One of my friends is painter/artist Allan Sillyboy from the Nova Scotia Micma, he had some pieces in BC for the olympics, ... we also did Sweat lodge together. ... perhaps you might also know my friend Trudy Sabel, who does a lot of 1st N work around many provinces.
