Love, respect, honesty, bravery, humility, wisdom and truth. These are the seven truths taken from the Seven Grandfather Teachings handed down orally through generations of Anishinaabe elders. They are guideposts, directions and, as award-winning author and journalist Tanya Talaga explains, they’re how the Anishinaabe see the world and themselves in it. With each new episode, Talaga examines a different one through contemporary stories about the lives of Indigenous people today.
