Elderberry Gratitude 100% | 3 Bar Pack
3 x 75g (8 square bar)
100% cacao content chocolate with Elderberry inclusion
Gratitude has always been an expression of appreciation for the Mohawk spiritual elders who remind us about the words that come before all other words, the words of thanks giving. When we start from this mind, of gratitude each day with recognition of the great sacred gift of life symbolized by the sun, we start on our daily journey to cultivating the good life and the good mind.
This year to symbolize our beloved elders and mentors, we are making a very limited batch of elderberry gratitude chocolate bars. The elderberry is a powerful food medicine of the forest gardens of the North, and it was the medicine that Hiawatha used to calm and console his troubled heart and mind after all three of his daughters were taken at a young age. Hiawatha used the elderberry branches to make the first condolence belt/teaching. Embedded in this teaching is a hint of the importance of the medicine of the elderberry and the many uses of the plants in the traditional Indigenous forest gardens of the North. For us the teachings we've received from elders like Wayne Roberts and their service to our food community is symbolized in the wisdom and beauty of the elderberry, the cacao, and the gratitude teachings.
Ingredients: Roasted cacao nibs, elderberry (Sambucus Canadensi)
