Moccasins of the First Nations.  "Being an Indian means being able to understand and live with this world in a very special way. It means living with the land, with the animals, with the birds and fish, as though they were your sisters and brothers. It means saying the land is an old friend and an old friend your father knew, your grandfather knew, indeed your people have always known." Richard Nerysoo, Fort McPherson, Northwest Territories
