ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“Because woman lives so close to our first mother, the Earth, she emanates the strength and harmonious nature of all things.”
–Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA
At an Elders gathering, held in July 1991, we were told the Indian woman would play an instrumental part in leading the healing of Indian nations. The old people said we were to look up to her in a sacred manner. They said the Earth Mother would give the woman special gifts of love. The woman and the Earth Mother are connected in a special way. Women should pay attention to the lessons coming from the earth. Men should treat the women with respect, dignity and honor.
Grandfather, Grandmother, give the Indian woman Your strength to heal our earth.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Our women are special in many ways, they are like the earth as they give birth to the new born just like the fertilized seeds of the plants and animals of the earth. Our relationship is closer than you may think. It is our responsibility to take care of our place of dwelling and stop the pollution of our air, water and land. Many women stand up and protest the polluting actions now days and speak to the Governments about what harm it is doing to where we all live. Almost every food bought in stores now days are chemically enhanced and truthfully not very good for you to eat.
