Healing Intergenerational Roots for
All Nations-One Tribe.
a place to heal
A new approach to community healing, mental health, and wellness.
Establish a social justice-informed and culturally rooted Intergenerational Healing Approach™ that improves mental health and wellness outcomes for Indigenous and underserved communities.
Our vision is to create the future leaders and healers for the next generation, with respect to the relationship with one another and our ancestors. Healing Intergenerational Roots (HIR) Wellness Institute follows the ancestral teachings and Indigenous knowledge of The Children’s Fire. The two laws of the Children’s Fire: (1) The Children’s Fire must forever keep going, and (2) The feminine must be protected. We will always seek to protect our future by pledging that no harm will come to our children by doing what is in their best interest and nurture the continuation of our ways. Our programming fosters a community-informed practice that addresses the complex impact of historical and intergenerational trauma through applying an Intergenerational Healing Informed Approach™.
HIR Wellness Institute is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that believes in a multi-systemic and integrated approach to providing holistic and high-quality mental health and wellness care. "HIR" stands for Healing Intergenerational Roots and is pronounced "Her".
"As an Educator and Academic Advisor for Native American elementary students for the past two years, I have witnessed first hand how our children's physical and mental health issues in some cases are in need of extended supportive care. The HIR Wellness Center would be the perfect place to receive the specialized, quality care that they deserve. Knowing the people at HIR Wellness Center, I can rest assured that our children's needs and goals will be obtained."
