Naa-na-nig-su, grandmothers who have gone before us. The spirits of our grandmothers in our cultural teachings tell us that we can call on them whenever we need to, so that we can do and say the right things at all times. The four directions, the four chiefs, are within nature; you can ask nature for anything you want and it will give it to you for your family.
