Traditional Healing

Nshwaasnangong is the spirit name given to the centre in ceremony. It means “place of the eighth star” in Anishinaabemowin. The name, gifted to the centre in an Anishinaabe Naming Ceremony, references the original eighth star in the Big Dipper that fell to earth and became the Anishinaabe people. The name infers a great responsibility for caring and sharing the gifts of the sky world, including the culture, teachings and language, for children and families who attend the centre.
