Leech Lake Legacy ... This We Believe

The following 'We Believe' statement is the foundation and the guiding/moral compass of Leech Lake Legacy ... the We Believe statements were first written in early 2009 shortly after Ahnung (a Red Lake reservation dog) came into my life through Karen Good, Red Lake elder and founder of Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. Ahnung (means 'star' in ojibway) was my north star from the very beginning. She was the inspiration and the fire behind Leech Lake Legacy when we were first called to assist the animals of Leech Lake Reservation in April, 2011 by Karen Good who sent an email out to her network of supporters ... "is there anything we can do to help a neighboring reservation?" And now, 2.5 years later, Leech Lake Legacy and Red Lake Rosie's Rescue collaborate and work closely together to provide support and assistance to the animals and pet owners of Leech Lake and Red Lake Reservations.

Ahnung, who crossed over into the spirit world on August 25, 2013, continues to guide us. She was our bridge in the fall of 2008 while she was here on earth in physical form. She continues to be a bridge to so many of us, as she continues to guide us, and connect us with each other, from the spirit world.

Chi Miigwech Ahnung. Chi Miigwech Karen ....
