Mother Earth—we come from her, we go to her and without her we wouldn’t be here. She gives all of us life and, because of her, we are all one family. In many segments of Indigenous life, we speak of Mother Earth, Father Sky, Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon. Meet Your Family is a rhythmic poem that will enlighten readers on how to view these important figures and share a greater concept of seeing the world as our natural family.
