A nishinaabe peoples were given original instructions on how to live life for themselves, their community, and with all living entities in their surroundings. This is what is known as “mino-biimadziwin” – the good life.
Presented by Myseum of Toronto this workshop is for anyone visiting or living within Anishinaabe territory who feel it is important to learn more about the original people of this land. This workshop facilitated by INDIGINizeUS, will help you learn about and connect with the Seven Ancestors’ Teachings: Respect, Bravery, Honesty, Humility, Love, Wisdom, and Truth.
Join us as we explore how these seven teachings influence the way in which we see the world, the city, and ourselves.
