Spirit Doctors

Marie Burke

A short documentary on the spiritual world of traditional Indigenous medicine of the Cree nation in Canada.

“What we do, we do every day, and it is natural for us… The medicine people are born with it, because that’s what was given to us from the beginning of time…”

One of the things that I learnt is that when I go and help the people, the Creator is helping them, slowly and in a manner bringing them back to him… to be able to center themselves.
