Native healing in N. Ontario project. (Reports For Romanow).

SAULT STE. MARIE -- Mamaweswen, the North Shore Tribal Council and the Sault Ste. Marie Friendship Centre received $601,600 over four years to develop a cultural health and mentorship program. Funding came from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

The N'Mninoeyaa Community Health Access Centre will provide seven area First Nations with traditional and contemporary health services. The program aims to develop a procedural framework that integrates Western and traditional health practices. The experience will be shared with Aboriginal and Community Health Centres throughout Ontario, Aboriginal communities, the Ontario Medical Association, and interested hospitals.

The Traditional Health and Healing Program will promote a holistic approach to healing which includes the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and cultural aspects of life. It will also include teaching clinics.
