In life, whether you are a plant, an insect, an animal or a human being, there are five basic essential components needed to survive. They are Air, Shelter, Food, Water and Space. Here is a typical shelter that the Aboriginal People used on the prairies many years ago. They were able to assemble it in a day, as they used to follow the bison herds on the prairies. Much of their food, shelter, clothing and tools all came from the Bison. So when the herd moved, so did they.

Many of their daily rituals revolved around nature. Example; The Tipi was made using 13 poles. The 13 poles in the tipi represents the 13 full moons we have in a given year….When you enter a tipi you go to the left and circle around in a clockwise direction. This represents the way of the sun…The door of the tipi always faces East, to meet the rising sun.

The Aboriginal People relied on the land to survive. It was sacred and they recognized that every living thing was of importance. Plus they only used what they needed. Nothing ever went to waste. A good lesson we SHOULD all be following today.

I serve as a volunteer interpreter at the Center, and this is part of the written teachings, as we take the children through their many nature programs.
