Respected Elder Elmer Ghostkeeper takes us on a journey of rediscovery where we gain a new perspective on the world we take for granted. Ghostkeeper tells the story of his attempt to reclaim and reawaken to his Indigenous worldview on his own terms with his traditional knowledge intact.

As he returns to his roots, he shares the series of natural signs that have guided his family through time and shaped their ceremonial activities in living with the land rather than off the land. He reveals how to follow the natural ebb and flow of nature with its spiritual exchange of precise and well-thought-out duties and giftings. As a fluent Cree speaker, he names the Cree words for the 12 moons of the year, setting out these traditional duties and preparations. His writing is a breath of fresh reality and air—air free of exhaust and spiritual exhaustion—air filled with spiritual inspiration.
