Youth Empowerment Message by Elder Dave Courchene
Static Preview

"Join those who have found their heart."

Elder Dave Courchene (Anishinnabe Nation*, Eagle Clan) talks with us on moving beyond selfishness, greed and need for power. We must return to the beginning and understand that we are spiritual beings that must be rooted in the land. In today's world we continue to support ideologies and concepts that separate us as the human family and help us destroy our home that we call Mother Earth. We are denying our young people their rights and he particularly addresses this issue and seek the guidance we need especially from our grandmothers. Published on Aug 14, 2015


"Anishinaabe or more properly Anishinaabeg or Anishinabek (which is the plural form of the word) is a collective term that refers to the Ojibway, Odawa and Algonkin Peoples, who all share closely related Algonquian languages."

Nibi (Water) Gathering at Turtle Lodge
Static Preview

Water is an element that can unite our Nations to serve a common purpose. 
     We are making an International Call to attend the Nibi Water Gathering at the Turtle Lodge, on the Shores of Lake Winnipeg, one of our most endangered lakes, where the four rivers meet, on June 4 and 5, 2015.
     At the Water Ceremony the Original People of Turtle Island (North America) will formally establish their leadership. The Nibi Water Gathering will coincide with the honouring of leaders in Earth stewardship, those who have been spiritually guided in their leadership, and the honouring of Youth completing their rites of passage to adulthood.
     It is our hope that People of all cultures will attend and make their gifts and offerings to the Water!
