A healing powow: Sanford Bemidji Medical Center hosts event to recognize relationships among hospitals


BEMIDJI -- Sanford Bemidji Medical Center hosted a healing powwow Thursday in celebration of corroboration among hospitals.

“It’s an annual event to recognize the relationship between our hospital here in Bemidji and the hospitals on Red Lake and Cass Lake Reservations,” said Sanford COO Joy Johnson. “And it’s a way to recognize the people who commonly take care of our patients between the facilities. Spiritual healers, as well as doctors and nurses and other staff.”

The event included a walleye feast, the Grand Entry, a special giveaway and traditional Native American dancing and drumming.
