Abstract:

"Dr. Sharon Acoose (Associate Professor of Indigenous Social Work, First Nations University of Canada) provides an enlightening investigation into how Ceremony (using Circles/Medicine Wheels and their connectedness to the land and its people) can enable individuals to live mi'no' - pi'maat'zhi'win' (Saulteaux for 'living the good life'). Specific to this book, Dr. Acoose discusses how Cree/Saulteaux culture and ceremony can be used as a tool for recovery. For those wanting to understand and overcome life as they are currently living it, this book provides an example of how to create a visual map of life from birth to where you currently find yourself. As such, one may use the knowledge and wisdom upon these pages, in collaboration with Elders, to understand where things went wrong, (and to celebrate where things went right) so as to be able to address problem areas."--
