"He was completely immersed in his subject matter, mastered from years of independent reading and by his painstaking creation of authentic-looking artifacts. He shared his vast knowledge and kept the adults and students spellbound. He revels in the gritty details of history...the glue that makes otherwise cold facts stick in our minds."
"Your stories and authentic costumes left everyone stunned. You have a wonderful variety of stories and you have the talent to present them in such a dramatic and unforgettable way. I appreciated your taking time after your stories to visit with young and old alike. I have always felt follow up was important and obviously you do too."
"two weeks prior to the Elko Festival, I was shooting an MTV video in New York City and each evening attended a Broadway show or concert or dance recital, each of high quality professional artistry. So it was an incredible surprise and pleasure to see the same high quality of creativity in Elko by professional storytellers"
"Great show! We'll have him back"
"As a teacher, I realize the importance of so many educational practices that you use in what seems like such an easy way: hands-on experiences, active learning, meaningful activities, integrated subjects, use of multiple intelligences, and so on and so on. Your programs allow me to offer the third graders at Meadow Lane the opportunity to "go back" in history and experience it. While doing so, they learn lessons that are multicultural as well as an integration of history, sociology, science, conservation, language, music, physical education, and mathematics. It's an experience that delights young and old as it educates."
"Great job. Engaging, a big hit, and easy to work with. "
"We were very impressed with Mr. Two Crows"
"He told his stories in such detail that we all conjured up memories from our own past and made us realize we too had stories to tell."
