Healing the Hoop 2 set for May 26-28

McLeod Lake Indian Band and Lheidli T’enneh First Nation in partnership with Bizzybody Enterprises are hosting a health and wellness gathering based on Indigenous well-being foundations from April 26-28 at the Conference and Civic Centre in Prince George and everyone 19+ is invited to participate.

This three-day event includes traditional and medicine leaders, healing guides, comedians, herbalists and inspirational locals and regional delegates. Marriot Courtyard is the “host hotel” while McLeod Lake and Lheidli T’enneh are the “community hosts.” The conference will offer a variety of healing circles – providing opportunities for delegates to participate or support – there is a place for everyone, and everyone has a place in the hoop.

Healing the Hoop 2 will include facilitators like Art Napoleon (from Moosemeat and Marmalade), Keith Secola (writer and singer of “NDN Cars” which is the most requested song on Turtle Island’s Indian Radio), David Daniels (traditional medicine man) and Loretta Parenteau-English (Elder, Sundancer and Ceremony Leader from Grande Prairie) and Christy Jordan-Fenton (the author of the Fatty Legs Series and honoring her mother who survived residential school) in addition to more than a dozen other trained and experienced facilitators to engage the delegation and share their knowledge in a good way.

The conference will support the development of healthy and self-sufficient First Nation communities by encouraging the integration of aboriginal culture and modern approaches to wellness and community growth. The focus is to provide individuals with the tools and/or processes to make positive changes in their lives, to find inner strength to improve their lifestyles and to feel inspiration and motivation from their ecosystem.

“Healing in unity is a powerful energy – it’s an honor to bring the HOOP to Prince George area and join all our relations in a good way, supporting and sharing one another on our personal journeys,” said Jocelyn Eisert, CEO, Bizzybody Enterprises
