Each band has its own unique spiritual beliefs and practices. Many native Canadians do not think of their spirituality as a religion but as part of who they are. There are some common threads among all native spiritual traditions. Native spirituality is closely connected to nature.

Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October whilst the American Thanksgiving is celebrated on the last Thursday in November. Also different things gave the rise to the national holiday.

25: Dear mom and dad, Here are a couple of reasons that I need to earn money to buy a tree. I really think this is important for the universe and the people living on earth. Lots of people may think this is silly but I don't and I think it is important because when I grow up I want to be able to breathe fresh air and not polluted air from cars and boats. I know that cars are good for transportation but we need more trees to make up for that pollution that we are making.
26: I will have pride in my tree if I earn the money to pay for it. I might love my tree more if I do the chores to buy it. I will have a sense of ownership. When I think about my tree I will have thoughts of doing chores for it and think about the fact that I worked hard for it.
27: The trees are part of a huge ecosystem. The trees prevent mud slides that slide down hills. If there is a lake or a river at the bottom of the hill then the mud will slide down into the river\lake and if fish live in the water the mud will slide in and kill the fish. Therefore if we go fishing in that rive\lake, we won't be able to fish because there won't be any fish.
28: It is really vital that we plant trees because of our ecosystem and to make up for the clear cutting that is happening to our trees. The trees have a life and deserve to live it well like we deserve to too. Even though the trees may not talk and we think they are not very important, they really are and may be the most important thing to us. We need to make up for the wrongs that we have done and change!!!
29: Clear cutting is bad for us but also bad for animals. Animals lose their homes, like it sometimes happens to us. How do you think that feels? We hate it when it happens to us so why do we do it to animals that are harmless. Now, animals die and lose their homes just because we want a wooden lodge or a wooden boat. Why can't we just have a fiber glass boat or a stone lodge? Animals natural habitats are being cut down and the animals are coming down the mountains into people's homes and killing them and\or their pets.
30: Stupid Inspired by Sandra Cisneros Birthdays are supposed to be the best days of our lives. Today is my 9th birthday. When I get home ma will have bought a cake and pa will be home early (because he stays at work late) all because of ME! Now I am in school though waiting excitedly until three when I get to eat MY cake with ma and pa.
31: “To whom does this essay with horrible handwriting belong?” questioned Ms Suzanna. (Who is a neat freak.) “Not mine” said the class in unison. But I just sat there looking at Ms Suzanna “I think its Ruth’s!” lied stupid Julia Parker. You know what the worst thing was? Well, I’ll tell you! Ms Suzanna believed that stupid Julia Parker! She walked right up to my desk and said “Tell your parents you got an F!!!”
32: “N-n-n-not mine!” I stuttered. “Now class, please turn to page 428 in your math notebook.” Ordered stupid Ms Suzanna to the class. “NO, NO, I won’t!” I whispered under my breath. Rrrrrrrripp!!! I started ripping that stupid essay from the bottom. “What was that?! “Screeched Ms Suzanna. “That was Ruth ripping her essay” answered stupid Julia Parker out of turn, but did stupid Ms Suzanna care about that? NO!!!
33: “Put that essay in your bag right now, and I will also send your mother and father an email with your essay and grade included!” Called stupid Ms Suzanna from the front of the room. Rrrrrrrrrring! “Class dismissed, go to recess.” We all got up and yelled “WHAT???!!!” “I-I-I, just wanted to say that the essay was mine!” Confessed Faraday.
34: “Well, you'd better tell Ms Suzanna that before she sends that email to my mom and dad!” I said in a very angry voice. “Sorry.” Called Faraday over her shoulder as she rushed to Ms Suzanna's desk. What a terrible way to spend my first day of being nine.

36: Mia may seem like the luckiest girl ever. But the truth is, Mia spends all her time doing one of the three things: preparing for her nerve-racking entrée into Genovian society, slogging through the congestion unique to Manhattan in December, and avoiding further smooches from her hapless boyfriend, Kenny. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy tale it's supposed to be...or is it? From: Princess in Love
37: Camping Inspired by Jenny Whitehead At one in the morning I lay wide awake Watching the stars Listening to the rippling river Smell the fire getting low Tasting the s'mores still in my teeth Feel the warm flannel blankets As I burrow underneath
