On May 25, 2014 there will be a Medicine Walk taking place at the Thunderbird House in Winnipeg, Mb. We understand that medicines are used to cleanse and heal our bodies, mind, emotions and spirit. They are also used to purify and bless sacred grounds. There are a lot of issues that effect our communities and by smudging we understand that it will nurture, strengthen, protect and heal our communities.
