There are many kinds of relationships. With ourselves and with others—Elders, family, peers, and with the land we live on. When we walk the Seven Sacred Teachings (Anishinaabe), we’re walking the good life.
“Old people are important people because they bring with them the history of the Nation, history of the family, history of the community,” Elder Don Robertson mentions in the Relationships video. Relationships with others can cause a range of emotions. When working with emotions, it’s best to speak to someone you trust, such as an Elder, Knowledge Keeper, or a loved one.
Main ideas in the Relationships video:
- Relationships with self and others
- Respecting the land and all that it encompasses
- Seven Sacred Teachings
