Sugar Moon brings us the maple sap that begins to flow. It’s a key medicine in Anishinaabe tradition and the third teaching from Grandmother Moon who makes 13 appearances throughout the year to watch over Mother Earth’s children and light their paths with her gentle wisdom.

March is an important time of cleansing and renewal after a long winter, and drinking sap from the maple tree balances our blood and heals us. But more than the physical, sugar moon is about the spiritual health of our lives. Do we honour and respect all our relations—the people, animals, rocks, stars and trees? Do our daily actions contribute to the well-being of everything that surrounds us? As we drink maple sap, we are reminded how all creation nurtures and sustains us, and our responsibility towards all life according to divine law.

Grandmother Moon is always ready to share her loving wisdom, and this captivating coin series brings you her life teachings with 13 original woodland designs. Canada’s Indigenous people view every aspect of nature as a living relation that plays an active role in their lives. And although variations do exist due to geography and climate, Grandmother Moon is a central figure, her kind and gentle ways always a common thread.

For the Anishinaabe people, the woodland cultures that extend from the eastern seaboard to the Great Lakes, and the headwaters of the Mackenzie River, Grandmother Moon is ever-present, making 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth’s children and lights up their paths. Every moon brings a new teaching that is illustrated in each coin design to foster understanding and respect for all of Earth’s creatures—a stunning work of art with a unique insight into Indigenous life!

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a leafless tree. To the left, a woman sits at the foot of a maple tree while maple sap drips from a wooden spout into a basket below. Two more birchbark baskets are at the ready. The use of bold lines, and the insertion of vivid colour within black areas as if to reveal what lies within, is a signature design element in woodland art.

3rd issue in this captivating series of original woodland designs illustrating the 13 teachings from Grandmother Moon according to Anishinaabe tradition.
