Dave Patterson is ideal for audiences that want to feel inspired about indigenous issues, instead of always guilty or upset about the latest news. For Dave's series of talks, he has compiled and organized the many truths in a way that is unforgettable to his listeners.
Dave will take you on a fascinating journey, delivered with the same passion that caught his attention in 1999, when he first heard Ray Fadden’s message on his car radio. It was at that moment that something changed in Dave and he was never the same. Dave Patterson is convinced that if it could happen to him, it could happen to others.
He loves and cares for his subject, as well as the people he talks to. That’s why his communication is clear, fun, and practical.
Get ready to go back in time and gain a new perspective. The experience will have you looking at the amazing narratives from a positive point of view, filling in critical knowledge gaps. Without going back to a point of origin and correcting many misconceptions, the problem-solving and complaints processes of today may be doomed to keep repeating the same errors and flawed solutions.
That is the extra ingredient of de-coding – that Dave adds: understanding that we as Westerners typically react with guilt. But to this date it hasn’t worked.
When you wonder why it hasn’t worked, you’re ready to come see Dave Patterson, the1492guy, and discover the 5 Steps to your Own Truth and Reconciliation.
