Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - MSUM is observing American Indian Heritage Month by building a unique stress reliever.
MSUM invited Spirit Lakes Spiritual Leader Laidman Fox Jr to campus to construct a sweat lodge.
Fox says this is a great opportunity for native people and the non-native students to observe spirituality and mental healing, but also voiced some frustration.
Laidman Fox Jr./Spirit Lake Spiritual Leader “I think it’s crazy you know that in this day and age that we need a month to be aware of the Native American people. I think it’s crazy. Hasn’t changed and must in 250 years.”
The sweat lodge will be open starting Wednesday night and available at 6 pm, every Thursday and Friday in November.
