Les concepts autochtones traditionnels de respect et de partage sont les fondements du mode de vie et ils sont issus des sept lois naturelles ou enseignements sacrés. Les enseignements honorent les qualités de base d’une vie saine et remplie. (Site Web de Saint Elizabeth, programme de soins des aînés, 2013)
Les sept enseignements sacrés sont représentés par des animaux dont chacun vise à représenter l’incarnation d’un enseignement particulier. Le mode animal enseigne aux humains comment la vie est liée à la terre, ainsi que le respect pour toute forme de vie. (Site Web thesharingcircle.com consulté en 2013)
Les SEPT ENSEIGNEMENTS SACRÉS comprennent ce qui:
The Eagle is able to reach the highest point of all creatures. This teaching recognizes that true love is connected to the Creator. Love that is given to the Creator is expressed through love of self as without the love of self it is impossible to love others.
The Beaver uses its gifts as a way to survive. If he did not use his teeth in the way he does to build his home they would grow until they were not useful to him. The Beaver teaches us that communities are built upon the gifts of each of its members. These gifts given by the Creator are important and necessary to use as a way to create communities of health and peace.
To know the truth is to know and understand all of the original laws as given by the Creator and to be faithful to them. Grandmother Turtle was present when the Creator mad man and gave him the seven sacred laws. It was the Grandmother Turtle who was to ensure that the laws would not be lost or forgotten.
