Community Wellness Gathering returns in 2023
December 23, 2022
Red Lake's Community Wellness Gathering returns in 2023 after a two-year hiatus (due to the pandemic) on (Mon-Wed) January 9-11, 2023 at the Red Lake Nation College. The objective of this gathering is to provide a catalyst for change in the community for people seeking solutions and opportunities that improve the quality of life for themselves and others. Using the Medicine Wheel as a guide, this gathering will focus on "what is working" when fostering success in people overcoming poverty, addictions, health issues, trauma, and grief.
The question of this gathering is how can we help to guide our people to the networks and resources that will improve their quality of life? This gathering will focus on the successes of our people, identify what resources are available, strengthen existing networks, and build new ones. In the words of the late elder and substance abuse treatment pioneer Cecil White Hat, "Everything we need to heal is in the culture."
The annual Community Wellness Gathering (formerly Drug & Gang Conference) will be held at the Red Lake Tribal College Mon–Wed, January 9-11, 2023. (Gatherings for 2021 and 2022 were not held due to COVID)
