"Words cannot describe just how i feel, tonight. I'm so glad I'm here and finally get to study what I love. This Summer Program from The Centre of Indigenous Theatre is the best decision that i've made for myself. It's like I'm no longer just chasing a dream. I'm living my dream. I just wanna cry, cause' I've been waiting for a good day, like today, in a long, long time." - Tom Polson July 2015
There's been so many good things that happened to me in 2014: I've worked on 2 Full-length Feature Films this year.
I've been hired as a head evening supervisor and started working with, some wonderful, native youth. I've got 1 hiphop song produced, on an album, that's features many other young talented artists and it was made available, on Itunes. Last but not least, I've worked and co-starred with a few professional actors, and many other aspiring, wonderful, native actors. Also, I've had the chance to work with some great directors and some AWESOME production companies. Plus, I've even had some Theatre training. So yea, So far, so good. You know what I'm saying. I feel truly blessed, this year. The Creator has been good. And, also it's all because of what you and the LEMON CREE program did, for me. I am forever grateful. I hope this will only get even better from here on out. Have a great day/night. Jessica.. Love, and prayers...your student, and friend," - Tom Polson.
"In light of Lemon Cree's mission to work together to promote health and fitness in our communities, Theresa continually pursues her vision to help Crees make positive changes in their lives through fitness and wellness programs at the community level... I am very excited to be involved in this undertaking and part of this new program for the Cree Regional Authority"
John Henry, Director of Sports & Recreation of the Cree Nation"
Thank you very much to you all! It really opened me up to new positive thoughts and goals." -Felicia Angel P.
"I think it is truly amazing what you are doing for the Cree people. A few decades ago, our ancestors used to be so fit and thin until white food and technology came along. Our lives changed forever but seeing you there...I think that change is now possible :) So many Cree people are now exercising, have increased self-esteem and are more aware of how their well-being is important for future generations. Please keep doing what you're doing, it's truly inspiring and you are making the Cree world a better and healthy place." -Jeannette R.
"I have personally witnessed and participated in the work of Lemon Cree. This group will be able to successfully improve the wellbeing of our staff as well as our people when it comes to sustaining a healthy lifestyle within our communities. -"Ashley Iserhoff, Deputy Grand Chief of the Cree Nation
"My first class on Saturday nearly killed me for 2 days. I felt so much on my abs area, it was a pain to sneeze, let alone get off my bed!! LoL had so much fun though! Last nights class with that new Lemon Cree trainer was great! ;) I love Lemon Cree! -Arlene M."
"WOW! This makes me want to contribute to the health and wellness within the Cree Nation too. I admire what the Lemon Cree team is doing. This is the reason why I want to be a part of the movement. I'm going on to become a Lemon Cree Trainer soon and I can't wait."Jason H."Our instructors were super amazing, supportive, encouraging, and if Lemon Cree are ever in your community doing a Bounce Fit or Power Fit, do try it out, you may love it, I fell in love."Bessie T.
