Making the world a better place can begin right here at home.
It’s more sensational for media outlets to carry stories of global disaster than to talk about issues and people within our own reach, in our own cities, province or country. Local needs often go unmet simply because we’re unaware of exactly what the needs are and how we can help. Common questions are often; What can we do? How can we help? Where do we start?
Raven’s presentations and programs are designed to provide information and insight into Indigenous culture and worldview which often times results in students and teachers wholeheartedly wanting to engage and support with Indigenous communities. There are several ways that we can contribute or get involved.
Here are a few local Programs that Raven has direct involvement with.
✓ Ravenspeaks Indigenous Literacy Sponsorship Program
✓ Jane Goodall Institute of Canada ( Roots & Shoots Program)
✓ ArtsCan (Pikanjikum)
The road to success begins with a solid education. Children who are given the opportunity to learn will grow up to be our nation’s next leaders.
Raven’s new book release “The Story of Sammy the Skrunk” was created to support Indigenous Education throughout schools and communities across the country by providing a resource that build bridges between cultures while fostering respect, appreciation and understanding.

ArtsCan Circle sends teams of musicians and artists to engage children and youth in remote Northern communities in workshops in the arts. Through music and other creative arts, we hope to teach new skills, promote self- esteem and creative self-expression. We build and strengthen relationships by consistent involvement in each participating community. Donate musical instruments, host a fundraiser or sponsor a trip.
