"We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful presentation.  The children and teachers learned a great deal.  The children get to share their favorite part and all parts were mentioned.  We will keep these memories for a long time.”

“Dear Bright Eyes,
Thank you for your beautiful lesson!  In sharing your traditional dance, song, clothing, stories and your ideas; you shared a part of yourself and history that connects us all.  Your willingness to hear the ideas of students, involve them in action and share the balance of activity with listening, made for memorable lessons.

I still ponder the lesson of the wampum and shared it with my husband (70) and daughter (26). I described how you looked closely at each child and modeled close listening, care and connection. I marveled at your lesson of never wasting as you explained how if you use something, you use all of it. Your words, tone, manner and love of all people, the world, and our connectedness shone through.

During your lesson, I had the opportunity to see the eyes of the children as they listened, fidgeted, got excited, danced, took a chance, and settled in for a new lesson. This, too, was a gift.

All the children loved your personal sharing about your family. The personal notet about your physical struggle brought home the universal lesson of a cycle of good times and bad times; symbolized so beautifully in the wampum. This connected with us all on some level.

In closing, I thank you for teaching me and inspiring me, too. Wishing you continued experiences that make your 'eyes shine bright.'"

Sincerely,

My love of this Culture and all Cultures comes from my father, Paul Bullock.  His Wampanoag ancestry, interest in people and ease of communication have been my touchstone in every school, corporate, scout, community event and Pow Wow that I attend.  He was the best mentor and teacher in the true spirit of humanity that I am honored to attempt to emulate.  He is known all over the East Coast for his public speaking, Master of Ceremonies skills and Native Education in schools.  For all the years that I was brought as his sidekick, I never realized that he was training me to carry on this very important role of awareness for the culture that we love so much.

To reinforce the little bull's commitment to cross-cultural understanding and passion for making meaningful commections, educational programs are offered to schools and organizations to teach others about Native life. Some topics covered are traditional views, customs and techniques, ornament and clothing, trade goods, warfare, diplomacy and political custom, lifestysles and material culture.

Upon request, Ed Bullock and friends also perform authentic Native American dances in a variety of dance styles including; Northern Plains Traditional, Fancy or Pan Indian, Eastern Woodland, etc. Dance programs can be tailored to a specific function or purpose. Most performances include Native American drumming and singing, explanations of the dances and regalia (dance outfits), cultural references, storytelling, and games for children.
