Candlelight Wolf Vigil
Joseph V. Sowmick - 11-14-2013
In an effort to provide regular bonus coverage throughout the month, Team Observer joins with the SCIT Tribal Council, Public Relations and the Saginaw Chippewa Academy in support of the Nov. 14th Candlelight Wolf Vigil. “Many of our people are not against hunting because we are providers for our families,” SCA Teacher Nathan Isaac said. “The wolf is part of our Creation story and is our brother … I will not hunt my brother.” Behavioral Health Helping Healer Bea Jackson gifted semaa pouches made by our community Anishinabe Kwe’ and Mide’ Elder and Tribal Council Chaplain Steve Pego shared wolf teachings in the SCA Teaching Lodge. “I personally know many Wolf Clan brothers and sisters,” Pego teaches. “Hunting for sport and without purpose is not Anishinabe and is not the way of our people.” Keep Michigan Wolves Protected Director Jill Fritz encouraged those in attendance to make their voice heard to stop the hunting of Michigan wolves. A special Observer shout out to PR Manager Marcella Hadden for her excellent photo story of the candlelight vigil.
