Wisdom Keepers

About This Collection

There are fifty+ channels on YouTube bringing the voices of wisdom keepers to the fore, most publishers are indigenous communities. We support the sharing and preservation of sacred wisdom teachings, the very foundation of sustainability principles and practices, and offer EarthSayers as a "connecting tool" working towards the idea of One Voice through this special collection and other vidoes on EarthSayers such the series, Native Perspectives on Sustainability and special collections on Indigenous Elders Dr. David Courchene, Ilarion Merculief, and Dr. Robin Kimmerer

We are grateful to the individuals and organizations who are using the world wide web to present and spread the indigenous voices of wisdom.

Healing from Addictions by Embracing our Sacred Individual Gifts and Responsibilities
August 11, 2021

Grandmother Katherine Whitecloud discusses the root of addictions: an imbalance from unresolved trauma, being disconnected from the land and our ancestral ways of being. To address these issues, Grandmother Katherine teaches about the importance of understanding our individual gifts and the roles and responsibilities the Creator has put us on Earth to fulfill, which can be learned by attending ceremony in our Lodges, guided by the love and support from the Elders and our families.

The Turtle Lodge International Centre for Indigenous Education and Wellness has partnered with the Sagkeeng Mino Pimatiziwin Family Treatment Centre to share teachings and provide guidance on how to heal from addictions.

Join us over the next few weeks, as we share messages from members of the National Turtle Lodge Council of Elders and Knowledge Keepers that discuss the root causes of addictions and how we can heal to live a more balanced and healthy life.
