Ziinzibaakwad GIIZIS

March/Zinzibaakwad Giizis, that Sugar Moon.

This months moon reminds us of that that gift from the Creator that helps us balance blood and heals us. During this time we are encouraged to balance our lives and nurture our Spirits as we balance our physical beings. This is the first of the medicines harvested in the new year and thus begins a new year of harvesting and preparing for what is to come. This moon also reminds us that when that sap is running for maple sugar/syrup harvest it is celebrated as the Anishnaabe New Year.
