A strong healthy community where all cultures respect each other. 


Educating, inspiring and empowering young people through Indigenous ways of knowing, with respect and honour for the natural world, for themselves and for all people. 



We believe that our actions and decisions must be carried out in an environment of openness, accountability and communication with our community. 

As an organization with philosophies based in Aboriginal culture, and committed to sharing Aboriginal ways of being and knowing, Ghost River Rediscovery lives by the Seven Sacred Laws: 


Wolf - We accept all beings as equal, and place the consideration of others, particularly the children and youth who (re)discover our world with us, before ourselves. 


Sabe - We act with integrity and truthfulness, seeking always to be honest to the laws of the creator, to each other and to ourselves. 


Buffalo - Our relationships are built on respect for the Earth, its creatures, and all peoples.


Bear - We strive to overcome fears that prevent us, and the children and youth with whom we share life and learning, from living our true spirit as human beings. 


Eagle - We act in love. Love for the creator, the earth, ourselves, and our fellow human beings. 


Beaver - We respect and nurture the special gifts in each person. We encourage people to use their gifts to develop peaceful and healthy families and communities. 


Turtle - We seek truth in all we do. We are faithful to the Seven Sacred Laws in our actions and in our decisions.
