8th Fire Dave Courchene Jr.

A video profile of Elder/Traditional Teacher/Visionary Dave Courchene Jr. of Sagkeeng First Nation, Manitoba Canada. I hope you can see the Wisdom he has to offer. The passion in his voice.

We need to hear, but more important need to listen.

Rites of Passage

David Courchene, Neeghani Aki Innini (Leading Earth Man) has travelled internationally, carrying a message of hope and peace, and sharing ancient indigenous knowledge that he believes can act as the foundation in supporting the New Life, that Mother Earth is now entering, and that the Elders have confirmed has arrived.

He has created a special place for sharing ancient indigenous knowledge – the Turtle Lodge – which was built based on a vision that he received many years ago. Indigenous people have always relied on visions and dreams to give guidance and direction in life. These processes for finding one’s life vision is a particular gift he has to offer young people at this time and believes that we would more quickly create a world of balance with such guidan
