The legendary giant Kitch-Sabe is featured in one of the Seven Sacred Teachings practiced by Aboriginal people throughout North America for living a full and happy life. Sabe's lesson is honesty; not merely speaking the truth and keeping promises, but more importantly, accepting and using one's own gifts and abilities to thrive instead of longing to be like others. People who are truly honest stand tall in the knowledge of who they are.
Canadian Metis artist Nathalie Bertin has created a powerful image of the towering yet friendly figure of the giant Kitch-Sabe welcoming a raven onto his arm. In the background, a bough of cedar, known for its protective and grounding qualities, reinforces Sabe's teaching of honesty. Honesty is one of the Seven Sacred Teachings that honour the traditional concepts of respect and sharing that are the cornerstones of Aboriginal life.
While variations of these teachings do exist throughout North America, this diversity only enriches them and underscores the universality of their wisdom. To be called'honest' is the greatest honor.
