“My hope is that when you leave my workshop, that you can participate in a more knowledgeable conversation and have an opinion based on real facts. I hope to provide a valuable overview for those who are seeking to learn about Canadian-Indigenous for the first time. ” – Jessica Dumas, Prime Image Life Coaching and Indigenous Insight Seminar Facilitator.
