Wynona Larson DreamCatcher Graduate

"My experience with Project Dreamcatcher was so much more then I imagined! It was both mentally fulfilling and professionally enhancing. My motivation and inspiration skyrocketed and I continue to function on a whole other level! The Thunderbird Staff and Alumni were very knowledgeable and experienced in their fields, as well as in life! The other Native Women were amazing and truly chosen to be leaders in business and for their People. I would encourage and recommend all women to attend Project DreamCatcher."
