Having presented to well over five hundred groups, schools, and conferences over the last two decades, "The Bear" is an experienced public speaker on a wide variety of topics related to Native peoples and culture. He is at ease with any audience size and age group, and equally comfortable with speaking in schools, colleges, and universities or to business associations. Presentations can last anywhere from twenty minutes to over two hours, and can be tailored in content according to the needs of the group and employer.
Of course, audiences can also choose to come to Gilles, where he can easily accomodate up to sixty people in his warm and cozy fifteen (15) metre long "Shaputuan". These workshops can also included guided tours of the nearby sugar camp.
