Our values grow from the culture from which we are born into and live with and our beliefs and attitudes emerge from our values. As Miississaugii people from the Mississauga Nation, we try to live a healthy way of life “Mino Bimaadizin” through the teachings passed down from ancestors. These teachings include 7 Grandfathers given to us by the Creator. This story has been passed down many generations.
