Turtle Beings and the Mother
The Grandmothers hold the highest
place of respect, love, kindness,
strictness, guidance and wisdom, exactly
the same as our mother the earth. She
gives birth to all gifts, all this abundance
and natural joy. Why have we forgotten
the generosity of the great mother,
wandered away from Her Wisdom?
A long time ago man fell very hard, and when he finally came to his feet, he was terribly
wounded, silent, and simply didn't know himself or his place in the circle of creation. In his
unknowing, his forgetting, he has lashed out against fellow human beings, all the other beings
of creation, and the Earth herself. We are begging to remember, we have the responsibility to
reclaim and heal what has been lost and hurt - to look after the wounded child within
Wounded and separated from ourselves, we cannot possibly embrace the joy and
unconditional acceptance of the Mother.
We are invited to remember that we come from the mother, that we are related to her
inextricably, that we must care for ourselves and Her.

Ancient Wisdom is in the collection of the Indian and Inuit Art Gallery, Ottawa, Canada.
