The Hollow Tree: Fighting Addiction with Traditional Native Healing

This book chronicles the author’s struggle with alcoholism and how traditional Aboriginal healing methods enabled him to remain sober for more than twenty years. After losing his arm, his self-respect and his family due to drinking, the Elders suggest that he go on a four-day fast in order to cleanse his spirit. The book reveals ritual healing with sweetgrass, the natural cycle of life, the medicine wheel, the sweatlodge, and the spiritual path that the author took in order to find acceptance within—spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally. The book includes a glossary, poetry, diagrams and vibrant drawings.

Herb Nabigon is associate professor, Native human services, Laurentian University.
