Indigenous Garden Opens with Smoke Ceremony
by: NJM Group Marketing on
Northern Health hospital’s new garden is now open, with an Indigenous smoking ceremony performed to mark the occasion. This ancient ceremony was done to drive away bad spirits and bring good luck.
By building this garden, Northern Health provides a calm place for patients to get away from the urban environment and relax with nature. For Indigenous patients, the smoking ceremony will also help them connect with their heritage.
Australian Bollards provided a message stick bollard that plays a recording of a smoking ceremony. The decorative design was inspired by an Indigenous art piece.
