Elton Beardy Zaagidiwin (Love Teachings)

February 12th, 2021 - 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm 

Via zoom

Elton Beardy is Anishinini from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug. He is a cultural educator, storyteller, and writer. Based in Thunder Bay, he currently works as a Youth Outreach Worker for the Biwaase'aa program, where he provides cultural support for secondary students. In his spare time, he enjoys everything Star Wars, gaming, and eating way too much pizza.

Together, through etymology, we will be examining the teachings, philosophy, and history behind the sacred law known as Love. This discussion will inform us on a better understanding of the way our ancestors viewed Love, and the various forms it takes in Anishinaabeg culture through traditional stories and personal experiences.
