Week Four, Day 4 Healthy Body and Soul

We Ojibwe are pretty partial to Sweetgrass. Along with Cedar, Sage, and Asema, it's one of our four sacred medicines. When braided, Sweetgrass is also a useful metaphor, reminding us to think about health holistically--mind, body, and spirit. Today, we learned about spiritual health from Sue Lemieux, who shared some wisdom from the Midewiwin Lodge and spoke about healthy lifeways.

Dan Powless told us about the tribe's latest efforts regarding food sovereignty and security.

Health and Wellness Director Deb Tutor told us about Bad River's beautiful new clinic and how creative they are with limited funds.
