Description
 
The turtle is one of seven animals featured in the Seven Sacred Teachings practiced by Aboriginal people throughout North America for living a full and happy life. Many groups consider the turtle to be the guardian of Mother Earth's most profound truths of nature. Its back is divided into thirteen sections, one for each of the thirteen lunar cycles that guide the seasons, and reveal the activities and changes that occur during each one; when the sap flows, when berries ripen, when to hunt, when the nights are longest.

Canadian Métis artist Nathalie Bertin has created a powerful image of a turtle and the perpetual lunar calendar that is preserved on its back, set against a background pattern of oak leaves that symbolize the power of the turtle's teaching's of truth. It knows that life's journey is more important than its destination.
