++++ => extra/notices not in print issue.
December 9 & 16 – Teachings of the Trail.
Teachings of the Trail is a series of bi-weekly learning circles at Kitchissippi United Church on Wednesday evenings from 7pm sharp to 8:30pm. In response to the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, this is a way to bring awareness to the “Kitchissippi Turtle” which is a knowledge base of traditional Algonquin spiritual teachings. Our Prophecy of the Seven Fires states: “In the Time of the Seventh Fire, a New People will search for what was left by the Trail.” We, our current generation, are the New People. These learning circles are open to everyone because we are all native to the earth. Through medicine storytelling and the sharing of authentic Kitchissippi Algonquin wisdom, this educational awareness mission intends to inspire people to see and embrace the good medicine of Life itself. Teachings of the Trail celebrates the re-emergence of local, Kitchissippi Algonquin Knowledge that helps us get better in our times.
