Project Title: Nimishomis - Nokomis Traditional Healing

Project Description: The Traditional Elders have combined their collective strengths, knowledge and traditional resources to provide healing and therapy through the practice of Traditional healing methods involving gatherings, ceremonies including the shaking tent, sweat lodges and one-on-one therapies and direct counselling to families of the 28 communities in Treaty #3.   Nimishomis - Nokomis has been operating a healing project since 1999 and since then has validated its approach by administering traditional therapy, medicine and treatment to over 700 Survivors per year.   With this experience and continuous direct contact with individual Survivors, they adapt the overall approach to the needs to the youth, women, men and Elders on a case-by-case basis.   Thus, the Survivors, their families and communities are directly involved in the design development and implementation of the project.
