Traditional healers may offer sweat lodges, shaking tents, sun Dances, fasting and vision quests. In addition sacred items such as the pipe, Drum, Eagle Feather and eagle whistle help make the connection with the Creator to aid in the healing of the individual. Traditional Healers often gather and prepare their own natural Medicines to offer individuals. Traditional Healers also use counseling and teachings – group or individual to guide each on the path to Mno Bmadzewen.

There are no out-of-pocket fees for Traditional Services provided at the Health Facilities for American Indians and Alaskan Natives. However, offering a full pipe bowl of natural Séma (Tobacco) to the Traditional Healer is the normal protocol.

This is open to any individual who qualifies for services through the NHBP Health Clinic. Services are offered monthly and by appointment only.

In order to benefit from these services, the individual must be an American Indian or their descendant, who qualifies for services through NHBP, mothers of unborn American Indian or Native American children or an NHBP employee. The individual must complete a Behavioral Health Screening that can be scheduled by an NHBP provider or calling the front desk at either health facility.
