Janey has a friendly and giving approach to her teaching. She has many amazing unique skills to share.

~Melanie R., Squamish Nation Expressive Arts Therapist, Artist + Facilitator

With Janey’s instruction, my class made salmon skin leather. My class was very engaged, interested and stimulated. Making salmon skin leather was a cross-curricular activity and Janey incorporated a respectful indigenous world view into her teaching style and content. Her expertise, knowledge and warmth created a valuable learning opportunity and a long lasting memory for my students.

~Marina K., Grade 5/6 Teacher

Janey is fantastic. She's taken on our cultural ways and has even learned our language along the way!!! She is very personable and professional. Much love n respect for Janey.

I hired Janey for a feature film where she served as traditional and cultural advisor. She was incredible!
