3 Nations Contributors: Dan Crowfeather McIsaac

Dan Crowfeather McIsaac was born into mainstream society 60 years ago, but has been walking the ‘Red Road’ since meeting his late wife Muin’iskw in 1999. Before that, he had no firm beliefs, except there was some guiding hand behind the universe. He could not accept the teachings of Christianity, because there seemed to be too many layers between himself and Creator. Daniel respects the spiritual choices of anyone who is sincere in their beliefs, and who does not use their religion to harm others. When he learned the teachings of traditional Mi’kmaw spirituality from Muin’iskw, they spoke to the Cree blood he carries—he had found his way at last.
