Comments from participants:
"All of the students received copies of the book and read it prior to seeing the Dr. Kelly speak."
"I drove 25 miles to come and see this and it was worth it."
"I learned how to speak several words in French and Native language."
"[I learned] how traps were set, how furs were skinned, how boundaries were set—much more."
"Dreams are symbolic of one’s life and the events taking place; find the symbolism and one can interpret the dream and perhaps make you a better person."
