This Guide provides information on aspects and protocols of
First Nations lives that are traditional practices that reflect a mindset
and worldview that goes beyond the mundane and into the spirit of life.
These aspects should not be judged as entirely spiritual or a practice
of faith, but as reflective of the cultures from which they spring; a way
of life.
At the foundation of this Guide is an acknowledgement of the need
for reconciliation that stems from the historic Truth and Reconciliation
Commissions Calls for Action. This Guide is in the spirit of making
Reconciliation more than just words, but a journey as well.
