The time has come to heal & reconnect with our ancestors. The next 7 represent the 7 sacred teachings… Love, Respect, Honesty, Courage, Wisdom, Truth & Humility. The elders tell us how simple, powerful & beautiful the teaching are: 1 Love: unconditional affection with no limits or conditions that starts with loving yourself. 2 Respect: due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights or traditions of other, with consideration, thoughtfulness,
