Little Spirit Moon brings us a time of healing so we can live our lives with the purest intentions for the good of all. ItÕs the twelfth 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 December, long nights and quiet days give us time to go within, to care for ourselves physically and spiritually. Only with rest and silence can we restore our health and receive the vision of how to live our livesÑa way of being that enables us to walk the Red Road with joy, gratitude, respect, honesty and caring, and share this positive energy to benefit all.

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 man stands to the left, gazing down the Red Road in quiet contemplation, his pipe at the ready to carry his prayers to the Great Spirit. The feather headdress reveals he has been honoured for four separate achievements, and the strands of hair that flow from his face are symbolic of his connection to the web of life as a sacred part of creation. The vibrantly coloured shapes within his silhouette are a signature design element in Anishinaabe art and represent the universal life force that animates all things.

12th issue in this captivating series of original woodland designs illustrating the 13 teachings from Grandmother Moon according to Anishinaabe tradition.
