In many areas of the world School Sisters of Notre Dame have been enriched by Native Peoples who have welcomed them into their communities. This small sample of ministry is focused on Canada and the United States where sisters have ministered primarily in education and parishes. An interprovincial experiment in Tahlequah, Oklahoma gives some important insights. One School Sister of Notre Dame who served with the Ojibway Nation was taught how to learn from Mother Earth, receiving a valuable lesson from a fallen elm tree.
