The Meadow & Medicine Garden

After passing the West Bathhouse, we may leave the main path and continue east. We set foot gently on the path as we pass through tamaracks and pine trees and enter the Meadow.

Looking up to the east we see Odali Utugi, Hope Mountain. We remember a place where people have hope in their hearts and know that peace is possible. Looking around us in the spring, we see a beautiful meadow of tall grass and wild flowers. In the summer the meadow is often busy with activity. It is the main camping area where individuals, families, and even whole communities camp, cook, and spend time together on the land.

Continuing on the path through the Meadow the Medicine Garden is on our left where the garden reveals the natural healing gifts of the plants growing in this area. We walk clockwise around the outside of the gardens, offering prayers and giving thanks.
