Seven sacred teachings
Knowledge is learned. Wisdom is experienced. But wisdom cannot be gained through blind eyes. One must watch and listen; find lessons in what is going on around them. The beaver teaches this lesson well as it observes its environment, using the sound and movement of water to determine where to build its dam and lodge. Then, with its sharp teeth and keen engineering skills, it builds its community. A forest cannot thrive without the unique gifts of all its residents; the wisdom that is passed from generation to generation.

Truth is to know and understand all the seven teachings have given to us by the Creator and to remain faithful to them.
To know truth is to know and understand all of the original laws as given by the Creator and to remain faithful to them. It is said that in the beginning, when the Creator made man and gave him the seven sacred laws, the Grandmother Turtle was present to ensure that the laws would never be lost or forgotten. On the back of a Turtle are the 13 moon, each representing the truth of one cycle of the Earth's rotations around the sun. The 28 markings on her back represent the cycle of the moon an of a woman's body. The shell of the Turtle represents the body real events as created by the Higher Power, and serves as a reminder of the Creator's will and teachings.
