Four Circles of Life: Earth, Air, Water and Fire Learning Mi’kmaq Perspectives to Protect our Environment for Future Generations
The Nova Scotia Environmental Network, the Peace and Friendship Alliance and the Halifax Central Library present four talking circle sessions led by four esteemed Mi’kmaq teachers to build right relationships. The traditional Native American non-hierarchical way to solve problems is to allow people to express honestly from the heart. In turn, holding a special object, each may speak on the topic introduced, in this context, by the Mi’kmaw teacher, or pass without speaking. When everyone has spoken as many times as they wish, the teacher ends the circle.
