First Fire: Guardian of the Eastern Door

Category: MAIN GALLERY

Click for larger image. Originally, the Ojibwe lived on the East Coast of North America. The tribe began a migration west after there was a prophecy about pale people coming. Some stayed behind to keep honoring the sunrise in the east, the Door to Knowledge, even though they knew they'd be destroyed. The Daybreak People, as they were called, have been gone for a long time, but Sunrise Ceremony is still performed by Ojibwe people today. Original available - inquire by email.

Third Fire

Category: MAIN GALLERY

Click for larger view As the Ojibwe people migrated over the generations, the way west was blocked by Lake Michigan. Some went south to try to find a way around, and others settled and drifted away from the teachings. A vision came to a young boy, depicting a path of rocks across racing water. Those who were still searching for the way west doubled back to find a swift river, which they followed north and found a series of islands across Lake Huron, finally creating their path westward again. Original available - inquire by email.
