The week has flown by! Today, Monica was very busy at Wanblee Clinic and was blessed to receive a visit from a gentleman whom she had treated on Monday. He had been in severe shoulder pain, experiencing limited movement. Today, he was moving much more comfortably and so appreciative of our care that he came back to say Wopila with beautiful beadwork for us.
Steve and I attended the Lakota Mental Health First Aid training, near Porcupine. Two respected tribal members led the training and provided an overview of the Lakota culture, offering attendees an approach for culturally sensitive mental health care. The day was filled with experiential learning and so it’s difficult to capture in a few words. Wopila to the facilitators for making this a special day!
Our week comes to an end, but our hearts are full with touching memories.
