When Wolf Steps In
Understanding what our animal helpers tell us.
This particular ceremony was in the fourth day and it was nearing midnight. The ceremonies were ongoing and started early in the morning for that day. I was standing near the doorway of the teaching lodge listening to the teachings being given in the fom of oral stories of the people. An art and a way that is timeless in passing of the knowledge of the people.
When I finished she said to me; “You have helped me see that this is my path. I am going to stay in the Midewiwin Lodge and I now understand why this is so important for me and my son. You know, it really is special how Creator puts signs on our road to help us when we need it.”
She answered slowly and with deep reverence as she looked down at the little boy sleeping on her lap, “My son is White Wolf and I am Grey Wolf.”
Nothing more was said until we arrived at her motel, some fifty miles from the Rez. We both knew something very profound had happened, and it was not a coincidence I was the one to give her a ride to her motel.
