Elder and knowledge Keeper Dorothy Taylor from Curve Lake First Nation has agreed to join 4RG and the Sacred Water Circle to tell us why the website “To All Our Relatives” can help us all with the pressures of the climate crisis. She will explore the name and what it means for those of us concerned with the fate of the planet. Also there will be a time for writing that note to a loved one, or taking a photo to put on the web to explain why you are concerned about the climate crisis and what you are doing. Get inspiration from others present.
The website, “To All Our Relatives”, modelled after www.DearTomorrow.org in the USA but with distinct Canadian content, is now ready for public input. Tell someone you love what you think about the climate crisis and what you are doing about it. Use photos of yourself with a sign, a video, or a simple letter to let them know you care.
Kina gdi-gwendaagininaanig – To All Our Relatives came out of a wonderful conversation For Our Grandchildren representatives had with two Anishnaabe Elders as we searched for the best way to address the climate crisis. The Anishnaabe way of including all life in the circle of responsibility, reciprocity, respect and recognition roots this website. If all Canadians understood that need to connect with the earth deeply, and to live a life of gratitude, we would not have the climate crisis that we are experiencing today.
Please take time to visit this website and enter the message you want – hopeful and loving, personal and political – for your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, friends and neighbours, even your future self.
