Nibwaakaawin , or Wisdom, is the first Teaching that you find on this website. Our ancestors looked up to the blue of the sky and into the clear water of the lake for Reflection and to Amik (the Beaver) for Knowledge. They understood the power of self-Reflection. They knew that to find Knowledge is to know Wisdom. As Amik uses his formidable teeth wisely and intelligently in order to survive, so must we direct our own life's journey by observational learning and by using our own unique gifts.
