"Seven Sacred Grandfather Teachings" Eagle - Love; Bear - Courage; Beaver - Wisdom; Buffalo - Respect; Sasquatch - Honesty; Wolf - Humility; Turtle - Truth. The Teachings are precious as they educate us how to be better people. It's not that we are trying to convert people to go the Aboriginal way. Our parents teach us to "be good", "be kind to others", "to be honest", etc. We are just using this as a teaching tool, to reinforce those virtues that we want to instill in our children.
