"Jason "Smoke" is a wonderful motivational speaker! Not only can he connect to the adult audience but also the young adults as well. I had the pleasure of hearing his speech about bullying prevention. This had me and my colleagues sucked in from beginning to end with the personal stories that he included. It was also very nice to see the young men look up to him and really listen and appreciate what he had to say. Because of his awesome work I am working at bringing him to my community so that everyone else may admire his hard work and dedication to the Native community.

“On Thursday, September 23, 2010, Alamo Community School, administrators, faculty, staff, and students had the wonderful opportunity to hear some of Indian Country's most dynamic and energized young people send their message of perseverance and hope. Jason "Smoke" Nichols along with his wife and female recording artist MiMi, Hip-Hop artist Cizko, and graphic artist Big Stu, spoke about their tragedies and triumphs. Both Jason and Melissa who recently suffered the loss of their twelve year old daughter, make sense out of their grief by daring us to pursue our dreams, express our feeling through poetry, and to be true to ourselves. Students, staff, and teachers used medicine wheels to write Hip-Hop lyrics; experienced the fusion of tradition with contemporary beats; and demonstrated the power of the pen in communication. The RezHeadz staff encouraged us to believe in the strength in the individual spirit and the possibility of forging a new course in life with courage and grace.”
