Follow the path of the Sun Dancer

The Peoples of the Anishinaabeg have always placed great significance on the sun. Mishoomis Giizis (Grandfather Sun) is central to some of our principal aadizookaanan (traditional stories).

To our People, Giizis is the symbol of GICHI-MANIDOO, the Great Mystery, and a spirit grandfather who guides all beings on Earth with his light and causes things to grow with his warmth. As he gives the gift of life once a day, it is renewed at dawn on the following day. Migizi, the white-headed eagle, is often associated with the western direction and the dawn and sunrise; the sun and the eagle have always had a close and powerful bond in the stories of our People, and sometimes they were even seen as interchangeable aadizookaanag (Spirit Grandfathers; literally: Makers of Stories).
