Anishnawbe Mushkiki delivers holistic traditional programs in a culturally appropriate manner, which reflect Indigenous culture, values and traditions.

Our traditional wellness tenets are to promote individual responsibility for health and lifestyle, to have respect for others and for one’s own personal integrity and to apply and practice values of acceptance and empowerment while understanding human growth and development as it pertains to all of the Seven Grandfather Teachings.

Our Traditional Wellness Navigator assists in creating an environment reflective to those we serve by weaving culture into everything we do.  We help connect clients to cultural services and programming both within and outside of our agency to support your health and wellness journey.

Please note, when visiting a traditional Elder or Knowledge Keeper, it is encouraged to bring a small offering of tobacco. Tobacco is also available at Anishnawbe Mushkiki for this purpose.

Anishnawbe Mushkiki provides connection to:

  • Elders and Knowledge Keepers
  • Sacred Medicines
  • Smudge Shells
  • Indigenous ceremonies or sweats offered in the community
  • External Indigenous services and programs
  • Drumming
  • Sharing of teachings
