Dream of Wild Health (DWH) hosted Oyate Nawajin at their 10-acre farm in Hugo, MN. Dream of Wild Health is a non-profit, Native-led organization and their mission is “to restore health and well-being in the Native community by recovering knowledge of and access to healthy Indigenous foods, medicines and lifeways.” We started the early morning in a good way with breakfast at Lake Phalen, and caravanned to Hugo together. Once we arrived at the farm we grounded ourselves in their prayers circle, thanked Creator for all they’ve given us during this visit and on the farm. During our visit we went on a plant walk with Hope Flanagan and helped out around the corn beds, and the herb garden and learned about all their medicine. We all felt honored to be in such a beautiful space, away from the city for bit and connecting with the land. Miigwech DWH for sharing your teachings with all of us and we can’t wait to see you in the fall again!!
