HEALTH AND WELLNESS
A good healthy life style is the bases of a strong Anishinaabe Nation. In order to protect the Nation and territory, we must live a healthy life and restore our traditions and cultural ways prior to the settlers invading our territory.
Today’s approach is both traditional and modern with the western medicines before us. Our Traditional healers are involved with our steps forward and the key to survival for many of our communities within the nation.
Time will be focused on bringing back the traditions and giving balance to our well needed strategy with Health and our Medicine Bundle.
