Sucker Moon brings the sucker fish back to the stream, and teaches us how to become healed healers. It's the fourth teaching from Grandmother Moon who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother Earth's children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom.

In April, the sucker fish returns to spawn after travelling to the spirit realm. As it swims through the water, it purifies a path for the spirits and cleanses the water beings. As life bursts within the stream and along its banks, we are reminded that we are but partners in this experience called life - that the harmony within the stream can also exist within ourselves. Once we are healed, we can bring healing to others through our peaceful presence and actions.

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a leafless tree. TO the left, a sucker fish swims downward, away from the viewer, along the edge of the coin. A trail of bubbles forms in the wake of its tail as the fish turns towards the tree on the right. The use of bold lines, and the insertion of vivid colour within black areas as if to reveal what lies within, is a signature design element in the woodland art.

An exceptional collection showcasing one of the most recognized forms of Indigenous art that is cherished for its beauty, as well as its powerful depiction of the Anishinabe themes and traditions.
