About Terry Harris and his Workshops

Terry Harris is an Okanagan Indian Band member, residing on reserve in the North Okanagan, near Armstrong, BC.

A veteran workshop facilitator and writer with 30 years experience, Terry works primarily with Native communities and organizations. He presents in many venues and regions throughout Canada and the United States including Honolulu, Seattle and Vancouver, as well as instructs at the Aboriginal Lifeskills Institute in Kamloops, BC.

His favoured environment is the remote cummunities of Tuktoyaktuk NWT, Oweekeno Village on the BC coast, Grassy Narros in Ontario and Kugluktuk, Nunavut Territory.

Terry's incredible range of information and workshop experience comes from his lifelong experience serving First Nations in a broad range of capacities:
  • Alcoholism Counselor at Round Lake Treatment Centre in Armstrong, BC
  • Self-Help Coach for his Band at Okanagan Indian Band, Vernon BC
  • Youth Director at the Saulteau Sioux Community near Chetwynd, BC
  -just to name a few.

Terry has visited, worked and lived in aboriginal communities from the Arctic, Hawaii, western Canada, through the Americas to the northern Andes of South America. He has seen and experienced, first hand, the amazing range and depth of the Native Experience.

Terry brings the very latest information and research regarding personal motivation, cultivating esteem and teaching strategies to the class with a light touch and lots of humour.

One thing you can expect from attending one of Terry's presentations - you will be challenged to grow and raise self awareness like never before. His vast experience and education will encourage and uplift you in the most surprising ways.

Terry's presentations are considered to be very effective and productive with a large body of successful work. His impact in the classroom has deepened participants' ability to provide exceptional, insightful results for personal, family and community endeavours.

In Terry's presentations, participants will learn a variety of strategies, insights and skills to continue and build on the workshop experience.

The basic premise of all the workshops is - "We are the resource, we are the power, we are the plan."

Terry is the author of a manual for trainers, entitled '50 Secrets From A Master Facilitators' Notebook', scheduled for distribution in the Fall of 2009.
