Earth Matters

February 28, 2018

"We say 'Ashkaakamigokwe' which means 'Mother Earth' because she is the giver of life. We must remember that. Mother Earth deserves the same respect we give our own mothers. When we take care of her she will take care of us."

On February 16, 1996, an ancient Peace fire was lit on the campus of Northeastern Illinois University by Muk Ta Tha - Bruce Hardwick,  and Muk Wa O Day - Duane Kinnart, two Ojibway Firekeepers from Rapid River, Michigan. Peacekeepers and Spiritual Leaders have been visiting the Northeastern campus for over 20 years to visit the fire Circle, participate in ceremonies on campus and share their knowledge and wisdom with our community, with coal bundles from the fires traveling around the world.
