A coming of age story.

A lesson in patience and the power of working together, as well as, the power of rainbows.
Using the Ktunaxa story of Lighting, Thunder, Fox and Coyote, Nasuʔkin (Chief) Joe Pierre will take you on a story journey that encircles our Mother Earth. After this, he will share some of his insights into this story and how these lessons can be applied to the times we find ourselves in.
