Thunderbird Studios works with young indigenous addicts and human trafficking survivors in the far north of Canada. Project leader, John Lambert, is a third-generation First Nations wood carver. He owns a highly successful wood carving and teaching business, and is best known for selling commemorative carvings to government organisations. Youth participating in Thunderbird Studios are referred by existing First Nations education programmes, and 1) attend metal and woodworking classes facilitated by John and 2) receive wrap-around social services support. John’s existing business is the main profit-making component of the social enterprise.
