Dee Ansbergs

I was born on a small Native American Indian reservation in the 1550’s. My grandmother was a mid-wife, healer, Wisdom Keeper and Medicine Woman. I grew up learning her ways. Later I was adopted by an Ojibway couple. Dad was a Sundance Chief, Medicine Man and healer. After mom had a stroke they moved in with me and we worked together in many communities. I have worked in schools, colleges, universities, remote communities; with at-risk children at large and within closed facilities, and with street gang prevention programs. As well, I worked inside local and federal prisons. Programs often start with a Sharing Circle and making a small craft, such as Dreamcatchers,small pouches, hand-crafted jewelry, and others, while sharing teachings of Co-operation, Kindness, Respect, Sharing, Truth, Honesty and Humility. Programs can be designed to focus on a specific issue, like racism, or environmental respect, as per community needs. I am also a writer,writing short stories and memories from my youth, as well as many of the legends and myths I learned throughout my life. Currently I am studying as a graduate student in Folklore. I am legally registered to conduct wedding ceremonies designed by the couple to make their ceremony a memorable and lasting memory.
