We are all related, but the way we relate is equally important.
During the Great Moon, we celebrate our responsibility to uphold our sacred teaching of kisteyihtowin (respect) and the importance of ensuring all are treated with respect and dignity. We also extend rights to others within Wahkowtowin.
Our earthly family members, and the natural elements, remind us of our interconnection every day. Let’s join together to drink tea, celebrate respect and honour our earthly family members.
Extend your hand in friendship to those around you – it’s part of the universal natural law that connects our spirits together.
This workshop is part of a monthly Wahkowtowin and Ways of Being series led by Knowledge Keeper Marilyn Dykstra. Each month, we will explore a variety of moon, pole and tea teachings in the Cree tradition.
Wahkowtowin – which translates to kinship – highlights how relationships, communities and the natural world are all interconnected.
Participants will discover and reflect on their connections with each other, with balance and with human rights through teachings and a traditional tea.
