The Story of the Seven Fires: Teaching Manual is published by Ningwakwe Learning Press and features a 64-page spiral-bound manual and an hour long DVD presentation. Traditional teacher Sally Gaikezheyongai presents in lecture-style the traditional teachings of the Ojibwe Seven Fires Teachings. The manual is at Level 4 of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) Literacy and Basic Skills Learning Matrix. The presentation to a live audience is told in the presenter's unique way as she relates teachings she has learned over the years. The Seven Fires include: The First Fire: The Coming of the Sacred Shell; The Second Fire: The Time of Change; The Third Fire: Movement and Migration; The Fourth Fire: The Meeting of New Brothers and Sisters; The Fifth Fire: The Time of Struggle; The Sixth Fire: The Breaking of the Sacred Hoop; and The Seventh Fire: The Time of Healing. Each teaching is designed to engage the listener so that they may draw connections to their personal and collective experiences as First Nations and to enhance their personal understandings of the historical and cultural awareness of their lives. The guide allows readers to explore their personal story through the readings and exercises and questions. Sally Gaikezheyongai is originally from Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island and has worked for years within the urban Aboriginal community with a focus on Native literacy.
