The Future of Native Wellness™
Freedom Lodge and The Black Hills Historical Trauma Research & Recovery Center has changed the conversationabout health, healing and recovery in South Dakota and across Indian Country.We believe that each of us has a role to play in the health of tribal nations and Mother Earth. Each of us has a wise contribution to make, and a deep remembering of who wehave been. We hold this knowledge in our body as a walking library of our ancestors.As the 8th generation approaches, it is time to look forward, to fully heal our wounds, to reclaim our heritage and to mend the Sacred Hoop of Life. This we do to honor the next seven generations. We invite you to join us.
