Our Elders tell us that water is the giver and protector of life;
It is also able to sustain it.
They say for this offering we must honor and give thanks.
A River represents purity,
a River and its tributaries are the veins and arteries of Mother Earth.
A River has the ability to clean itself,
and is always in a state of transition in its early stages.
The ability to shape itself ultimately determines its own destiny.
One River flowing into another makes the River stronger
and fosters that Spirit of Cooperation to overcome all obstacles in its path.
Together Rivers ultimately reach their common destinations,
bringing with them new life, meeting the food requirements downstream.
Yet each River is able to maintain its own destiny and uniqueness.
Never does a River leave, once it has joined another.
It's this peace and harmony that is so attractive and achievable.
We, the Madadjiwan Corporation, are that River.
And we are now embarking upon a journey with other Rivers upstream and down.
The Mattawa/North Bay Algonquin First Nation is our Ambassador,
carving routes for future generations to follow.
