Sweat Lodge

The Sweat Lodge seen without its tarp which keeps in heat from the stones brought in.

The Sweat Lodge is a sacred place where First Nations People go to pray and gain spiritual healing. It is a way to connect to spirits and ask for guidance in life.

Resembling a sauna, stones are heated in a special fire just outside the lodge. To help gain access to answers of the participants questions, songs are sung on a drum and medicines are burnt.

The ceremony of the Sweat Lodge has lead to a positive and progressive lifestyle and encourages positive thinking and well being.
