Speaker

I speak on occasion… sometimes at high schools, sometimes at junior high schools, sometimes at college, sometimes at conferences, sometimes at church, and sometimes at myself.

My honorariums have ranged widely from negative amounts to thousands. I don’t have set fees but I do ask that you consider the travel, lodging, food and time it takes away from my family to speak.

Here’s my graduation speech for ASU’s American Indian Convocation. I felt really fortunate and grateful to speak to the family, friends, and graduates. It was truly a humbling experience for myself.
