At McDermid, we celebrate the Grandfather Teaching of Truth.
The Grandfather Teaching of Truth is represented by the Turtle (Michif: “La Torcheu”).
A turtle represents truth because a turtle has remained the same since the beginning of time. A turtle adapts, but does not change its basic nature. We need to remain true to ourselves and not allow the core values we have to be changed by what is going on around us.
A turtle also has 13 big shells on his back – which represents the 13 moons in a year. This is a reminder that we need to walk in truth all year long.
