Watkonnewnwqeraton/ I send you my Greetings, Thankfulness and Love. My condolences go out to Angus' family and loved ones. His passing is a journey we will take one day. He is leading the way for all of us.

Years ago I attended many of his SunRise ceremonies and many of his circles and learned much from his wisdom. The passing of an Elder reminds us of the knowledge and wisdon they held and shared freely and we are grateful While Angus will surely be missed he is even better able to guide from the spirit world.

O:ne ki wahi Angus. Skennenko'wa/ Great Peace is now your.

My Mother Kristiane, and I, met Angus when I was 6 years old. Pow wows and spiritual gatherings were attended together. My existence and continuation of living a traditional life is because of this very special man. Such as impact on me and my life I am living, and forever will I cherish the special moments we shared and experienced together. "You" are all around me......xox
