Traditional Teachings Of The Mattaponi Tribe
Look to the medicine wheel for mental health, Elders advise in First Nations study
“Traditional teachings have to come back in order [for us] to know who we are and how to balance ourselves,” said an Elder participant in the study. “We need to go back to having the mind, the body and the soul reconnect.”
“When your soul is sick, what you need is not a pill, it’s to go back into that place of connection to family, to homeland, to knowing who you are,” says Kyoon-Achan.
