The Seven Grandfather Teachings and You

A Path to Wellbeing in Our Work with Young Children

As educators, we know the importance of children’s sense of well-being and belonging to their development and learning. Yet we know too that children in our programs often struggle with feeling accepted, understood, and respected.

In this online conversation, we will be exploring Indigenous teachings that can guide us in this relational work we do with young children. The Seven Grandfather Teachings include love, respect, honesty, courage/bravery, truth, wisdom and humility. Each teaching is represented by an animal whose character teaches us how we can live our lives in harmony and relationship with animals, people, and the environment – every living thing.

The Seven Grandfather Teachings originated from the Anishinaabe People and have been adopted by many other First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples. Michelle Leonhardi Taylor, an Anishnaabekwe, will be drawing us into a deeper awareness and understanding of why these teachings have an important place in our work with young children and in our lives. She will be inviting us into dialogue about how to use animals and story to introduce these teachings in ways that have meaning for children and adults alike.

This Online Conversation will be invaluable to indigenous and non-indigenous educators and programs.

Michelle Taylor-Leonhardi, R-NECE, is the Coordinator at Oshkiigmong Early Learning Centre.
