2
History of the Seven Sacred Teachings
  • According to an oral traditional story, the Seven
    Teachings were given to the Anishinaabe early in
    their history. When the Seven Grandfathers sent
    their Messenger to learn about the current state
    of the Anishinaabe people, they were told that
    the people were not living in harmony with each
    other nor with the rest of creation. In a vision
    quest, the Messenger found a child worthy of the
    teachings, and the Seven Grandfathers tutored the
    child in the
  • good way of life. Each Grandfather instructed
    the child with one teaching, which collectively
    became known as the Seven Teachings.
  • When you follow the Seven Teachings you will live
    a good and happy life.

HONESTY
  • Honesty means to not cheat, lie or steal. Living
    your life in an honest way keeps things simple
    and peaceful.

4
HUMILITY
  • Humility is to live your life free from
    arrogance, to not be boastful, and to have a
    modest sense of your own worth.

5
WISDOM
  • Wisdom is gained through experience and
    knowledge. To have wisdom is to know the
    difference between right and wrong, and to apply
    these qualities to your daily life.

6
LOVE
  • Love is an emotion that is the driving force of
    life. With love, all things upon Mother Earth
    thrive and grow. To know love is to find peace.

7
RESPECT
  • Respect is an attitude. To honour and listen to
    your Elders, parents and teachers is a sign of
    respect.

8
TRUTH
  • To know all of these things is to know truth.

9
COURAGE
  • Courage is being brave in the face of lifes
    problems. Daily challenges take courage to
    overcome. Never give in, never give up.

10
RESPECT
  • The Buffalo represents Respect because for as
  • long as we have been here, we have sustained
  • our lives through the Buffalo in terms of
  • clothing, food, shelter, medicine and art.

11
  • Native people depended on the Buffalo for
  • survival and used every part of the animal
  • Hides - tipis and clothing
  • Bones tools and toys
  • Meat food
  • Tendons Muscle sinew
  • Brains hide tanning
  • Skull medicine and ceremonies

12
  • We have to take care of Mother Earth. We need to
    make sure that Mother Earth will be here for
    generations to come. We all share in this
    responsibility. Our Elders have passed down what
    they have been taught by their Elders about how
    to take care of Mother Earth and each other. We
    can start Ruth Hooker School with Respecting
    Mother Earth, our school, teachers and each
    other.
