(Seven Grandfather Teachings)
____________________________

We have to take care of Aki (Mother Earth). We all share in this responsibility. Each morning let us remember to greet our Grandmothers and Grandfathers whose spirits are in the many glories that surround us. They taught us, as they had been taught by their elders, how to take care of Mother Earth and each other.
We can return to the Teachings given to us. We need to pray and give thanksgiving. We need to know the Teachings of our elders to give us direction and balance. Especially our leaders who are young; they need to listen and learn. We need their participation. To take care of Mother Earth and the community of life, we need to remember the Teachings of the First Elder. The First Elder gave us the gifts of knowledge that he received from the Seven Grandfathers when he was a little boy.
Each Grandfather gave him a great gift. One gave him the gift of NIBWAAKAAWIN (Wisdom), and he learned to use that wisdom for his people.
Another gave the gift of ZAAGIDWIN (Love), so that he would love his brother and sister and share with them.
The third Grandfather offered the gift of MANAADJITOWAAWIN (Respect), so that he would give respect to everyone, all human beings and all things created.
AAKODEWIN (Bravery) was the next gift, the courage to do things even in the most difficult of times.
A fifth Grandfather gave the boy GWEKOWAADIZIWIN (Honesty), so that he would be honest in every action and provide good feelings in his heart.
Another Grandfather offered DIBAADENDIZOWIN (Humility), to teach the boy to know that he was equal to everyone else, no better or no less.
The last gift that was given to the boy was DEBWEWIN (Truth). The Grandfather said, “Be true in everything that you do. Be true to yourself and true to your people. Always speak the truth.”
The Grandfathers told him, “Each of these Teachings must used with the rest. You can not have WISDOM without LOVE, RESPECT, BRAVERY, HONESTY, HUMILITY, and TRUTH. To leave out one is to embrace the opposite."

nolan_daris_brown Hit the snow line on my hike. Mostly solid enough crust to run on it but I did fall through plenty of times. Snow to my knees and nearly hip deep in some places. 3w
