may you uncover your greatness this this year

uncover the meaning of debwewin
follow the spirit of zaagiidiwin
plant those feet into the earth and stand with aakode’ewin
trace the lifelines of ancestors by understanding nibwaakaawin
look into each others eyes with minaadendamowin
may your voice never falter when you speak with gwayakwaadiziwin
and if you fall, get back up again without shame but with da baadendiziwin

happy new year everyone!
