The Iroquois (traditionally Haudenosaunee) people see the cycle of life in all of our ceremonies and thanksgivings. Turtle’s shell is our calendar with its pattern of 13 large plates representing the thirteen moons in each year & 28 smaller plates showing the 28 days from one new moon to the next. We say that the Moon is our Grandmother and she has 13 names in the course of a year.
