“We are one with Mother Earth”
Sweet grass has been used by the First Nations people of the Great Plains
for millennia to cleanse, heal, and prepare for ceremony. Elders teach us
it is the hair of Mother Earth and that the three strands of the sweet
grass braid represent body, spirit and mind.
Many minds, unique in perspective but united in purpose,
envisioned our new strategic plan, peyak aski kikawinaw.
And now, like the braided strands of the sweet grass,
we are woven together – one body, one spirit,
one mind – with one vision for our future.
Together we are stronger.
