A Culturally Based School-wide Positive Behavior Support

Miskowasimowina = 7 Sacred Teachings
The Traditional concepts of respect and sharing that form the foundation of Cree way of life. They are built around the seven natural laws, or sacred teaching. Each teaching honors one of the basic virtues intrinsic to a full and healthy life. 
Respect (Buffalo): Respect involves being considerate of others including nature and anmials. In Aboriginal culture, it is also very important to respect other, particularly the Elders. 
Courage (Bear): Courage requires the mental and moral strength to overcome fears that prevent us from living our true spirit as human beings. It is a great challenge. 
Wisdom (Beaver): People demonstrate wisdom when they apply the talents they have for the benefit of others. Wisdom is revealed when everyone works together. A community is entirely dependent on gifts given to each member by the Creator and how these gifts are used. 
Love (Eagle): True love is in knowing the Creator. Love given to the Great Spirit is shown through caring for oneself, and is it understood that if one cannot love oneself. it is impossible to love anyone else. 
Truth (Turtle): To know truth is to know and understand all of the original laws as given by the Creator and to remain faithful to them. To live in truth is to be obedient to the teaching from the Creator. 
Honest (Wesakechak): It is important to follow and keep the laws of the creator and to tell the truth to each other. The highest honor that could be bestowed upon an individual is saying "There walks an honest man, he can be trusted". 
Humility (Wolf): Recognizing and acknowledging that there is a higher power than man (The Creator) is to be truly humble. By expressing submission to the Creator, through the acceptance that all beings are equal, is to capture the spirit of humility.
