There will be a week full of events, information and services from November 13-19, as long as people come forward, that is.

Organizers Maria C. Riske and Kerry Buck at Nak’azdli Health are looking for anyone interested in providing local talent, information or participating in the myriad of activities they are planning.

The week is an expansion on the traditional medicine wheel, and will include information and activities related to spiritual wellness, physical wellness, intellectual wellness, emotional wellness, environmental wellness, occupational wellness and finally social wellness.

The entire community is invited to take part, and there will be a sweat lodge on the Sunday to start things off.

The week is still in the planning stages, and anyone interested in taking part by providing free information booths, demonstrating skills, providing services or performing can contact either organizer at 996-7400.
