“I’ve been working here with White Raven Healing Centre since 2003 and I love my job. I’ve helped a lot of people with their healing. It feels good to know we help people who come here by being here to provide ceremony for people. I am very proud of being raised with my own language which I never lost (which is Cree). Their are few people who can still use the language. It feels good to use it and to have never have lost it. Use the language wherever you can.”

Senator Margaret Keewatin,
Okanese First Nation

“The All Nations’ Healing Hospital is a very special hospital because of the access of both contemporary healing practices and First Nations spiritual Institutions (sic) ceremonies. These are available for patients who enter the hospital, both First Nations and Non-First Nations patients… They have access to contemporary health care, (medications, drugs) and the real medicines (natural plants), also other spiritual Institutions that were practiced since Creator put First Nations in this part of the world.”

Rick Favel,
Kawacatoose First Nation

“Culture is the centre of all the spokes of our organization. We help with guidance for people to open their own door to understanding and to learn in their own way more about the ways of knowing from the languages spoken by our grandparents. We now have helpers on staff from all of our 5 languages. It’s good we have a growing hub to share and gather these understandings. We try to stay mindful of each of our 5 languages and encourage understanding in each your own culture. We welcome sharing these methods and understanding of language and medicine knowledge to encourage the growth and continuation of motion, so our big wheel keeps on rolling in the same direction.”

Murray Ironchild,
Piapot First Nation
