For many generations, the legend and teachings have been shared and spread from coast to coast across North America. Today, they are being used in schools across Canada and the United States to help promote and develop student character.
This 22 slide PowerPoint or Google Slides presentation includes a retelling of the Legend of the Seven Grandfathers and explains each of the seven sacred teachings. A worksheet reviewing the Seven Sacred Teachings accompanies the presentation. When combined, these two resources provide an excellent introduction to the Teachings of the Seven Grandfathers.
