The World was made for Peace Sequoyah Trueblood, a Native American story teller will speak about bringing our relationships into harmony with each other and Mother Earth.
He will tell the ancient stories of the First People and how Humanity in the beginning was a people of Oneness. Sequoyah Trueblood (enrolled with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) has contributed selflessly for many years in Canada, and the United States, and around the world as a role model for healthy leadership, bringing peace and joy to the hearts of many. As a ceremonial pipe carrier and with an “off the grid” style in his work he offers something most have never experienced: the genuine guidance of a supportive, profoundly inspired and diversely experienced Elder.
His consistent ability to touch wounded hearts and sooth troubled minds with compassion and wisdom has endeared Sequoyah to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people alike. He has a varied background in leadership capacities within Indigenous peoples contexts as well as Western institutions including the U.S. Army, World Bank, Institute of Noetic Sciences, Harvard University Program for Extraordinary Experience Research, and Corrections Canada. Currently he spends most of his summers living from the Kankurwa Medicine Lodge at Cross River Wilderness Centre.
