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 team arranges traditional healers and alternative health therapy services integrated with our primary healthcare clinic, coordinates a variety of cultural events and workshops, such as medicine picking, beading, men’s and women’s sweats, and craft classes and offers a variety of support groups.

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