Indigenous Words


There is a battle of two wolves inside us all
One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority, and ego.
The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth.
The wolf that wins? The one you feed.
– Cherokee Proverb

“There comes a time when we must stop crying and wringing our hands and get on with the healing that we are so much in need of”

“To heal a nation, we must first heal the individuals, the families and the communities.”

–Art Solomon, Anishinaabe Elder


The Fire Within

Each of us carries a fire within….whether it’s through the knowledge we have, or through our experiences and associations, we are responsible for maintaining that fire.

At the end of the day maybe we should ask ourselves: “how is our fire burning?” Maybe that would make us think of what we’ve gone through that day — if we’d been offensive to anyone, or if they have offended us.

Maybe we should reflect on that because it has a lot to do with nurturing the fire within. And maybe if we did that….to let go of any distractions of the day by making peace within ourselves….maybe then we could learn to nurture and maintain our own fire within.
