Freezing Moon reminds us to prepare for the spiritual path that lies ahead during this season of fasting. ItÕs the eleventh 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 November, the Star Nation is closest to Earth, and all the creature beings prepare for the lean winter ahead. People gather around the elders to learn the sacred songs and teachings that will sustain them. Freezing Moon is an important time of sharing that strengthens our connection to each other and to Creation. It nourishes our spiritual and physical wellbeing so we can endure.

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 a leafless tree. A human figure stands to the left, arms outstretched, holding a drumstick and drum to the Star Nation. The drum doubles as a medicine wheel to represent the sacred teachings that are being expressed through song. The vibrantly coloured shapes within the figure are a signature design element in Anishinaabe art and represent the universal life force that animates all things.

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