The Sharing Circle

The Sharing Circle is Canada's longest running Aboriginal documentary television series. This unique program presents half-hour documentaries focused on current, relevant issues that are explored in traditional, spiritual ways. These fascinating and poignant stories offer an insightful and meaningful look at Aboriginal People, Indigenous Knowledge and Spiritual Practice.

The Sharing Circle is one of the few shows on television today that is primarily concerned about the Healing of the World through the dissemination of Truth. The traditional concepts of respect and sharing that form the foundation of the Aboriginal way of life are fashioned around the Seven Natural Laws or Sacred Teachings. These guiding principles form the basis for The Sharing Circle. They honour the basic virtues intrinsic to a full and healthy life. Each of the Seven Laws is embodied by an animal, underscoring the connection between humanity and the animal world while instilling a respect for all of life in those who follow the Traditional Aboriginal Way.
