ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“When a community does something together, that community is very happy, jovial, connected and unified.”
–Larry P. Aitken, CHIPPEWA
The Indian People have always been able to adapt. If the hunting changed, we found new hunting grounds. If the earth changed, we moved to a better place. If the river changed course, we followed the river. But with every change, we kept our Indianness and spirituality. Our culture and spirituality have always been our strength. Our culture and spirituality taught us to live in harmony. We must change with the times, but we must maintain our culture and spirituality, always living in harmony.
Great Spirit, You have taught us to survive. Let me always maintain my Indianness.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
We have always been taught to be able to adapt. Flexibility is related to a willow in the high winds it bends and twists but seldom ever snaps and breaks. Am I a willow?
