Mi’kmaq Creation Story (Tan-wet-abeg-sol-teagw – Where we come from)
A Canadian Museum of Civilization Presentation
Produced by GAPC
The following two videos (parts one and two) feature a version of the Mi’kmaq Creation Story (Tan-wet-abeg-sol-teagw – Where we come from) explaining not only the origins of the world and its inner relationships that ties everything to all else but also the Gepmi-talemunetj-jijaamijk or the Honouring the Seven Spirit.
Make sure to listen and appreciate the wisdom of the stories!
For more histories and stories of creation from the Mi’kmaq and also the Mohawk, Ojibwe or Anishinaabe, the Cree or Nēhiyaw, and Kainai Black Foot, take a look at the Four Directions Teachings website, a project supported by Department of Canadian Heritage and the Government of Canada, and produced by the National Indigenous Literacy Association.
