2014 Canada $20 Seven Sacred Teachings : Respect Fine Silver (No Tax)

The buffalo is one of seven animals featured in the Seven Sacred Teachings practiced by Aboriginal people throughout North America for a full and happy life. The buffalo's lesson is respect for the environment and all living things. The buffalo embodies one of the most significant examples how humanity's survival is dependent upon nature, and invites everyone to find comfort on its back-and thrive.

Metis artist Nathalie Bertin has created a powerful image of a great, benevolent buffalo with an abstract figure lying on the buffalo's back in a position of comfort and security; the eagle feather in the figure's hand is an important ceremonial object often given as a sign of respect. The background pattern of sage leaves reinforces the buffalo's teachings.
