Winnipeg, MB

Located in St. John's Park, Winnipeg on Treaty One land, the Kapabamayak Achaak (“Wandering Spirit”) Healing Forest received its Spirit name as a gift from Peetanacoot Nenakawekapo, an Anishnaabe Elder. The gathering space, based on the medicine wheel, is wheelchair accessible and provides space for quiet reflection and ceremony. A sacred fire pit (stored offsite) is available on request. Four large grandmother stones, with intricate artwork by Natalie Rostaddejarlais, mark the four directions. The steering committee is working with neighbourhood schools and communities to develop a living curriculum to learn about medicine plants and Indigenous teachings. A small resource library is also available.
