Canada's Indigenous people view nature as a living relation that plays an active role in their lives. 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, and this fine silver collectable coin with full colour illustrates how Bear Moon teaches us patience and to honour the vision quest that began in the fall. It's the second teaching from Grandmother Moon in Anishnabe tradition. In February, the bear may come out of hibernation after a long slumber, having never doubted that life would return to the forest. Bear teaches us to see beyond "what is," and to trust in our vision and dreams. Like the bear, there is no need to growl loudly and dominate others to get what we want. There is far more power in silent confidence and steadily moving toward our goals.
