With Monica McWhirter
Saturday March 11, 2023
8am PDT / 11am EDT / 5pm CET
Approximately 2 hours
The Seven Grandfather Teachings are among the most widely shared Anishinaabe principles because they are relatable and encompass the kind of morals that all of humanity can aspire to live by. They offer ways to enrich one’s life while existing in peace and harmony with all of creation.
In the Algonquin community we believe that with every breath we take we are in ceremony. The first breath we take is our very first ceremony, and so as we walk this road we remain connected to all that is around us. In this workshop you will be learning the first steps to walking the Red Road and incorporating some of the core teachings of the Anishinaabe and Metis culture. We will be learning the Seven Grandfather teachings and an introduction to Algonquin ceremony.
The teachings offered at this event are sacred and life altering. You will be gaining a deeper insight into First Nations culture and practices. There are many teachings and many ways; these are some of those practices. As Indigenous people we believe that we are remembering rather than learning.
