Quote for Indigenous Mental Wellness & Addictions Training | APCFNC

“We need a Healing Lodge, where we can practise our own way of life and looking after our own mental and emotional well-being. Getting in touch with the land, honouring the water, giving thanks to the animals that help to identify our strengths and weaknesses. Prayers are about giving thanks, giving thanks for food and the medicines that we have, giving thanks for another day on Mother Earth.”

– GLENDA WYSOTE-LABILLOIS
