Operation Beaver

Dave Jones of Turtle Concepts inspires at Frontiers breakfast with empowering message

on Fri, 07/01/2016 - 13:19

At this year's Frontiers Foundation annual breakfast, the keynote speaker, Dave Jones, an Ojibwe man of Garden River First Nation and founder of Turtle Concepts, not only gave an inspiring speech on his approach to building pride and confidence in aboriginal youth. He strutted through the crowd to show what confidence looks like and got everyone up and moving their hips. Jones has a strong presence in front of youth and adults alike and had a strong, positive upbringing from his mother and father that helped influence the way he now inspires confidence in aboriginal youth at hundreds of communities, schools and organizations across Canada.

With his help, many youth have been inspired to "become confident, get an education, change your history, move ahead".
