Bear Moon teaches us patience and to honor the vision quest that began in the fall. It’s the second teaching from Grandmother Moon who makes 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth’s children and lights up their paths with her gentle wisdom. In February, the bear may come out of hibernation after a long slumber, or a she-bear may emerge with her cubs. Months earlier, both were able to see beyond the darkening days of autumn, and never doubted that life would return to the forest. Bear teaches us to see beyond “what is,” and to trust in our dreams. There is no need to growl and dominate others to get what we want. There is far more power in silent confidence and steadily moving towards our goal.
Grandmother Moon is always ready to share her loving wisdom, and this captivating coin series brings you her life teachings with 13 original woodland designs. Canada’s Indigenous people view every aspect of nature as a living relation that plays an active role in their lives. And although variations do exist due to geography and climate, Grandmother Moon is a central figure, her kind and gentle ways always a common thread.
For the Anishnabe people, the woodland cultures that extend from the eastern seaboard to the Great Lakes, and the headwaters of the Mackenzie River. Every moon brings a new teaching that is illustrated in each coin design to foster understanding and respect for all of Earth’s creatures, a stunning work of art with a unique insight into Indigenous life.
