Lessons from Chief Vern, 2013, Joey Podlubny, Calgary, Alberta

Chief Vern Janvier, Chipewyan Prairie First Nation, would often say to me, “Let it go.” Letting go of what I thought something was or should be. Letting go of past beliefs. Letting go of my ego. He taught me that if we allow ourselves to see a new way, it can be one filled with love for each other and Mother Earth.
