Description

The Lost Teachings Panuijkatasikl Kina’masuti’l by Michael James Isaac is an engaging story, with effective illustrations by Dozay Arlene Christmas, allows the reader to reconnect to and understand the seven Grandfather teachings and their meaning in relation to themselves and society as a whole. The Lost Teachings is a story about the importance of the seven teachings — wisdom, respect, love, honesty, humility, courage and truth — and how interconnected they are in achieving balance, harmony and peace for individuals and society as a whole. One day as the great Eagle flew high above the forest he came upon a small bundle containing seven teachings, teachings that will bring balance, harmony and peace to all who practice them. But the teachings come with a simple warning: beware of envy and greed. As Eagle spreads the seven teachings throughout the forest, he forgets to heed their warning and soon the forest is lost to jealousy, greed and selfishness. Eagle must save the forest, and he soon learns the most important teaching of all: truth. The simple story told in dual language, Mi'kmaq and English, has a special lesson for all readers: When you see Eagle flying high in the beautiful sky above, ask yourself this: Am I proud of myself? Have I respected myself, others, and the environment? Have I stood up for someone and stood up for what is right? Have I practiced the teaching of truth? The Mi'kmaq translation is provided by Yolanda Denny and Elizabeth Paul. Highly recommended
