About Indigenous Knowledge

Canada is blessed to have a wide variety of Indigenous peoples and communities with a vast, deep understanding and appreciation of the natural world, and mankind's place within in. Indigenous authors provide a link and pathway for the wider community to share in this knowledge that has been passed down through millennia, and for this unique and vital perspective to be propagated into the general discourse on Canadians' journey as a nation towards Truth and Reconcilliation.

Told by Chief Thomas Fiddler, these various tales of Weesakajac (teacher and fool), and other creatures, medicine battles between clans and others stories dramatize the socio-cultural dynamics of Fiddler's homeland and provide a view as to the how-and-why, mysticism, and mystery of boreal cultural.
The Legend of the Mimigwesseos
The Legend of the MimigwesseosThe Legend of the Mimigwesseos contains stories and wood-cut illustrations about the secretive elf-like creatures known as "Mimigwesseos": creatures who were sometimes helpful, but also dangerous to meddle with who lived in the vast water laced boreal forest of the Woodland Cree. While the Mimigwesseos are gone now (along with the underwater moose, talking animals, and the terrifying witigos), this books shares stories about these legendary characters of the spirit world.
Spirit Animals - The Wisdom of Nature
Spirit Animals - The Wisdom of NatureSpirit Animals - The Wisdom of Nature is a timeless book authored by award winning and acclaimed Aboriginal writer Wayne Arthurson. In this book he dives into the world of spirit animals to showcase the intrinsic link between the spirituality of Canada's Native peoples and how it was formed by observing the natural world around them.
Spirit Animals
Spirit AnimalsOur Aboriginal Elders tell of a time when animals and humans could speak to each other. When humans became too greedy and killed more animals than they needed for food, the Creator changed that relationship to protect the animals. So the Creator made a Spirit Animal to represent each one and granted them gifts they could give to people.
