Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community Helps with the Building of Sweat Lodge
Eagle’s Healing Nest receives $469.95 GRANT from Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community to help with the building of Sweat Lodge.
Sauk Centre, MN – Eagle’s Healing Nest announced a $469.95 Grant received from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community on October 4th, 2016. The grant will be used to help with the building of the Eagle’s Healing Nest Sweat Lodge. The generosity of this grant will allow us to purchase the final component, a canvas tarp, which will protect the sweat lodge from the elements, allowing healing within.
We are very blessed, as a country, for the many warriors who have served in our nation’s armed services. We are equally blessed that those warriors continue to share their culture, traditions, healing and wisdom to help all healfrom the invisible wounds of armed conflict. This tarp will be the final covering for our sweat lodge, allowing all warriors to come together to heal with each other.

A promise to one and a need of many was what created the vision of “Eagle’s Healing Nest”. The “Eagle” represents the past, present and future military strength, independence, pride and honor. The “Nest” is full of meaning such as home, family, brotherhood, safety and security. The “Hands” cradling the nest represents the many that will wrap their support and give services to the veterans and military members to help reintegrate them back to their families and into their communities.
Many of our military are struggling and need programs with a caring hand to assist them. Eagle’s Healing Nest will help foster purpose and direction. Our service member’s families, who also serve our Country, deserve the resources, support, and best treatment available. Eagle’s Healing Nest provide this.
Our team at Eagle’s Healing Nest is here to ensure we do not lose another generation of veterans to homelessness, broken family units, or suicide.
It is the vision and hope to never have those who served in our military to live in darkness but to bring them into the light to soar and fly free. To help restore the honor, dignity, pride, and purpose each deserves.Download Press Release (pdf)
