“Ceremonies have enriched my life, and [provided] a strong connection with my mom, with my Nohkom, all of my ancestors, and a connection to the land.”

What defines a "mother"?

The Honouring Our Mothers promotion defines a mother as anyone who is a caregiver, who brings up (a child) with care and affection, and who looks after (someone) kindly and protectively. They do not have to be your biological parent. They can be your guardian, your foster parent, your aunt, your grandmother, or other relation. They can be living or in the Spirit World.
