Teachings from the Elders

Every morning and every evening
Give thanks to the Creator,
For the life within you and all life,
For the good things given to you and others.
Consider your thoughts and action of the past day,
And seek the courage and strength to be a better person.
Look for the things that will benefit all.
Treat every person with respect at all times.
No person should be made to feel put down by you.
Treat the Earth and all her aspect as your Mother.
Show deep respect for the belief of others.
Respect the wisdom of the Elders.
Always treat your guests with honour,
Give your best food, blanket, the best part of your house.
The hurt of one is the hurt of all.
The honour of one is the honour of all.
Observe moderation and balance in all things.
Listen and follow the guidance given to your heart.
Expect guidance to come in may form;
In prayer, in dreams, in times of quiet solitude,
Also in the words of Elders and Friends.
