When I asked my YouTube channel subscribers to share topics of interest, one that came in often was the 7 Grandfather Teachings. This week I am sharing about the one we are told to “lead with” – Zaagi’idiwin – Love. Let’s talk about it!
I Have a Dream (VLOG)
As Anishinaabekwe (an Ojibwe female) who works tirelessly to make this country that we call Canada a safe and wonderful place for all who live here, I have a dream. As a woman who has desperately sought out (and often didn’t find) safe spaces, I believe it is a dream that can and must come to pass. I even share in this video how YOU can help me make my dream come true. Let’s talk about it.
