An honest person is a giant within their community. People are drawn to their authentic nature, their open and accepting ways. Honest people do not pretend to be something they are not, and the words they speak can be trusted 100 percent.

First Nations communities across Canada share an ancient legend of Kitch-Sabe, a giant who walked among the people to teach this sacred virtue. To be called "honest" is the greatest honour. This lesson is also embodied by the raven as it embraces its own gifts and does not long for the beauty, strength or talents that may have been given to others. But the raven can also be a trickster; and too often, people emulate it in this way. People who are truly honest stand tall in the knowledge of who they are.

Honesty is one of the Seven Sacred Teachings that honour the traditional concepts of respect and sharing that are the cornerstones of Aboriginal life. While variations of these teachings do exist throughout North America, this diversity only enriches them and underscores the universality of their wisdom.
