Falling Leaves Moon re-awakens our spiritual energies as it fills us with awe and wonder at autumnÕs fiery landscape. ItÕs the tenth teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishinaabe tradition that views the moon as a living relation who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother EarthÕs children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom.

In October, the leaves turn to breathtaking shades of red, orange, yellow and gold before falling to the ground. ItÕs the grandest of spectacles to honour Mother Earth, and a powerful reminder of all the miracles in creation that sustain us and all our relations such as the animals and plants. Even as life seems to fade from the forest, we can trust it will return in spring. Falling Leaves Moon is a time to honour, and give thanks.

Grandmother Moon is always ready to share her loving wisdom, and this captivating coin series with 13 original woodland designs, brings you her life teachings. The Anishinaabe 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 Anishinaabe people, Grandmother Moon is ever-present, making 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth's children and lights up their paths. 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 the Anishinaabe way of life.

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon behind an autumn tree with only a few leaves clinging to its branches while others fall to the ground. A woman kneels to the left, her head bowed in prayer. Plumes of tobacco smoke rise from the bowl in her hands. The vibrantly coloured shapes within the womanÕs silhouette are a signature design element in Anishinaabe art and represent the universal life force that animates all things. The womanÕs flowing hair is symbolic of her connection to the web of life as a sacred part of creation.

10th issue in this captivating series of original woodland designs illustrating the 13 teachings from Grandmother Moon according to Anishinaabe tradition.
