faceted and complex process and Waseskun’s overall aim is to empower residents to accept responsibility for their own actions and understand the consequences they have created for themselves, their victims, families and communities. Our Waseya Holistic Healing Program uses a variety of methods aimed at producing changes in negative lifestyle patterns and enhancing residents’ self-esteem and self-concept as an Aboriginal person.

This healing process encourages and empowers residents to regain their cultural identity, reconnect with traditional values, learn to lead healthy lifestyles and develop new skills and tools to help them reach their full potential.
