Earl Lambert - National Aboriginal Addictions Awareness Week: Sagamok FN

"Earl carries out 6 presentations in a 2 day period in Sagamok First Nation. Working with all ages and intertwining music and magic, he presents on spirituality with the youngest children in the daycare, and then touches on honoring your identity and believing in your dreams with students in kindergarten and grades 1-4.

Grades 5-8 and then 9-12 become very engaged as he presents on substance abuse and addictions, illustrating with his personal story exactly how they can act as barriers in the journey toward their dreams. He encourages the students to brainstorm healthy coping strategies as a way of empowering them toward making health decisions along the way.

His final two presentations include the Right To Play program where he shares some music, hip-hop and get's the youth involved in some humorous and uplifting activities and the Ontario Works Employment Training Program, where he shares how education, employment training programs, AND his cultural practices and traditions helped him to make a transition from income assistance and addiction to being a clean and sober warrior living a successful life."
