Centuries ago our people the Dene, Cree, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakota, and Lakota were born to this land, no other. The Creator prescribed a way of life, including a language, beliefs, ceremonial practices, and customs for each of our Nations to help them nurture the mother child relationship that exists between us and the earth, our mother. We knew that all things within creation are related and have a spirit, similar to that of man and that each has an express purpose and place. We understood the interdependency that exists within creation and that man is the most dependent and least contributive member. Therefore we sought to live in harmony with nature and were thankful for what the Creator had provided for us. Our prayers, stories, songs and dances acknowledge this relationship and express our respect for all our natural relatives.
