At the Indigenous Family Camp of Healing and Reconciliation, Indigenous clergy and community pillars lead cultural activities such as drumming, smoking meat, teaching about the tipi, beading, and prayer services. Children and their families come together to pray, eat, learn, and participate in cultural activities. We pray that Christ's healing work is realized through this ministry. Settler volunteers attend, facilitating the background logistics. We pray that Christ may animate reconciliation through these relationships built at Okema.
