Anishinaabe prophecy declares that now is the time for Indigenous peoples and the Settler community to come together and build the 'Eighth Fire' of justice and harmony; this is the moment for real, open and honest dialogue between the different segments of modern Canadian society. The potential held in this moment in history is immense. Justice based on ancient teachings and rooted in the land can happen with everyone’s participation and cooperation.
