October / Oigeoigos ! (wig-eow-e-goos)Oigeoigos is animal fattening month . It is the time of year we prepare ouselves for the up-coming season. The students will be learning about the animals and the teachings learned through them. The focus animal during this month is the Tiam, the Moose teaches us Respect through giving it's life and sharing every part of its being, showed the deep respect it had for people. No animal was more important to the existance of Indigenous families.Its gifts provided shelter, clothing and utensils for daily living.Our people believed themselves to be true caretakers of the Tiam, developed a sustainable relationship resulting in true expression of RESPECT :)
