~”[Some]one Who Told The Sacred Stories”
As a first speaker of our language, Clara’s worldview was founded on the philosophy of the collective recommendations of our ancestors. She carried our aadsookaanan, our sacred stories passed on from generation to generation. She grew up with these stories; they provided her instructions on living, guidance for life, and connections to our Nishnaabe way of being. With her heartwarming smile and gentle nature, Clara was involved in many community initiatives aimed at strengthening our lives. She gave generously of her knowledge, skills and love.
