Reclaiming Identity and Healing

“Attending ceremonies provides a sense of identity, builds confidence, provides positive support. I am learning to become whole through my identity and culture”

 – Anishnawbe Health Toronto Client

 

Colonization has eroded Indigenous teachings, practices and ceremonies in Canada.  Historically, government policies and laws that have discouraged to outright banned these traditions. Today, there is a shortage of traditional healers and a need to lay the foundation for future generations.

 

Traditional Healing Programs and Services are central to all programs and care at AHT. Clients can access Traditional Healers, counsellors and medicines, Sweat Lodges and Ceremonies such as Smudge, traditional births, Shake Tents, Feasts and Naming.
