Mii/naa/dend/mowin- Respect

Respect is represented by the buffalo. The buffalo gives every part of his being to sustain the Anishinabek way of living, he does not matter less, but he respects the balance and needs of others. To honor all creation is to have respect, you must give respect to receive respect. Live honorably in your actions towards all of creation. Be mindful to not waste and to give what you do not need. Respect yourself, and respect others.
