The Call Out:
Fwd: Please note that we will meet in the Park only if it is nice! (The weather says it might rain)
Feel free to bring your drums/shakers and singing voices and perhaps some fruit or light snacks.
Through the process of colonization, we have misplaced or forgotten the Seven Grandfather Teachings. We are beginning the process of our “Return” by re-installing our sacred teachings.
This is a group discussion, that is focused on shared insights and experience.
The following is an excerpt from The Mishomis Book: The Voice of the Ojibway – Edward Benton-Banai
To cherish knowledge is to know WISDOM
To know LOVE is to know peace
To honour all of creation is to have RESPECT
BRAVERY is to face the foe with integrity
HONESTY in facing a situation is to be brave
HUMILITY is to know yourself as a sacred part of
TRUTH is to know all of these things.
Breaking any of the Seven Grandfather teachings,
breaks them all.
