Elder explains the origins of the First Nation Seven Teachings
Manitoba First Nation Elder Dave Courchene explains the origins and lessons of the First Nation Seven Teachings.
The lessons of the Bear Spirit (Courage), the Beaver Spirit (Wisdom), the Eagle Spirit (Love), the Buffalo Spirit (Respect), the Sasquatch Spirit (Honesty), the Wolf Spirit (Humility) and the Turtle Spirit (Truth) are all retold in this 11 minute video in both English and Ojibway.
The First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples of North America were given seven sacred laws that were to act as a spiritual foundation.
The traditional concepts of respect and sharing that form the foundation of the Aboriginal way of life are built around the seven natural laws, or sacred teachings. Each teaching honours one of the basic virtues to a full and healthy life.
In receiving these laws from the Creator, First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples were told to always respect Mother Earth. To show real respect is to share and give of yourself for the benefit of all life. We too all belong in the great circle of life, thus we must show respect for one another in order to have a good life. Respect the Elders from all races of people who uphold the sacred teachings of the Great Spirit.
