SKHC Calendar 2020

Mkwa are protectors of the medicines. They walk with the medicines. Mkwa carry the responsibilities of law and security ensuring that there is order within the community. Through hibernation, Mkwa shows us teachings about fasting and how travel can take place between realms. In this moon, we hold the Bear Feast as this is the time that the female turns within her den and gives birth to her cubs. Mkwa carry the gifts of introspection, strength and courage. MKWA (Bear) IMPORTANT NOTE: Your clan is not determined by what month you were born in therefore this is not a birth month calendar. The Anishinaabe Ojibway clan is determined by your father’s family line and is passed down through his lineage.
