Islamic Institute of Toronto - First Nations Elder


Islamic Institute of Toronto (IIT): Earth Teachings With Nii Gaani Aki Inini

The Islamic Institute of Toronto welcomes the visit of First Nations Elder Nii Gaani Aki Anini (Dave Courchene Jr.). His traditional name means Leading Earth Man. He is a leader descended from a long line of leaders and chiefs of his people, the Anishnabe. He will be sharing the First Nations concept of the Circle of Life that maintains that what we do to the earth, we do to ourselves. As our community affirms the need for mutual respect between Muslims and First Nations – we recognize that the history and deep respect that aboriginal elders have for the earth can inform and provide guidance to our communities in healing and caring for the Creation. Please download the flyer for more details.
