Our Children, Our Selves: Rites of Passage

The Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society embraces the fact that our children are the future of the world. The children will grow up to become world leaders, national leaders, volunteers, athletes, teachers, politicians and much more. If the children are taught to think freely, solve problems, and assume authority for their actions then they will help the world continue to prosper in the years to come.

For this reason, Rites of Passage are a very important part of our offerings.  These ceremonies mark important stages in our development, helping us recognize, celebrate and integrate our growth and process of maturing.  Rites of Passage ceremonies begin in childhood, and continue through adolescence, adulthood, and into and through our elder stages.

Through the wheels and keys of the Sweet Medicine SunDance path, we nourish the creative spirits of the children and prepare them for obstacles later in life. We offer various opportunities for children of all ages.
