Treaty 2 Territory – April 16, 2021

Earth Lodge invited by Zoom, Traditional Knowledge Keeper Isaac Murdock to speak with FNT2T staff about the Earth and the Natural World, “Our Lodge.”

BIO: Isaac Murdoch, Fish Clan, Serpent River First Nation

Isaac Murdoch grew up in the traditional setting of hunting, fishing and trapping. During his many years living off the land, Isaac has learned many of the stories and legends that accompany many of the Sacred Sites and Values placed on Mother Earth and has become a wonderful narrator and advocate for these precious treasures. His many years of experience of conducting ceremonies have helped him maintain a special balance between people and nature and he is known for his advocacy for getting the younger generation in-touch with the land and these Sacred Sites.

Earth Lodge is honouring April 22nd Earth Day a little bit early this year.

Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held on April 22, 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EARTHDAY.ORG (formerly Earth Day Network) including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries.

We have asked Isaak to speak on Aki and the Natural Laws. Here is some of the points that Isaak shared with us.

The medicine is in our Anishinaabemowin

We are lowered to the “Lodge” by the 4 Sacred Powers of Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

We are only “Guest” to the Lodge. We the Human Beings are not the boss, we are caretakers only.

The Laws were always present at the Lodge. The Grandfathers gifted us with the animals to form our government (Clan System).

The Land is our true government. Spiritual Laws vs. Band Laws.

We have to re-learn our Inherit Responsibilities by going back to the Anishinaabe philosophy and spiritual laws.

Land base education is key.

-This is the 7 Generations, we are now the the sacred story. What kind of Ancestors will we be for the future generations. Are we the heroes or the villains’ in this story.

There were a lot that Isaak had shared with us. Therefore, the Earth Lodge has invited Isaak to join us next week to talk more about the Sacred Stories that is happening now.
