Donna TalkingLeaves honors her maternal Grandparent's stories of life in Indian Territory, and their insistence that she never forget her Native ancestry, as the red thread throughout her life.

Therefore, as an adult in search of self-realization, Donna naturally sought guidance and inspiration from Native American Elders, Teachers and Storytellers. This personal quest transformed her life; fueling a passion for the sacred stories of Indigenous People everywhere.

Donna TalkingLeaves would become a storyteller and a weaver of story into Ceremony.

"The cosmologies, sacred songs and since-always stories of Native American Nations, as well as those of other Indigenous People with whom I have lived and studied, provide the sacred roadmap for the Ceremonies I offer."

Donna TalkingLeaves' unique ability to create Sacred Space, in storytelling, sharing circle and ceremony, opens the door to transformation.
