Jul 31, 2018

In June 2018, the Big Lagoon Rancheria opened The Club, a full-service, family focused fitness club in McKinleyville.  Virgil Moorehead, a clinical psychologist at Two Feathers Native American Family Services and Jennifer Enos, the head strength and conditioning coach at The Club, talk about their philosophy of a holistic approach to physical and mental health.


What is the mental health prevention and early intervention impact of two culturally specific practices - the Stick Game and Flower Dance?

Virgil Moorehead from Two Feathers Native American Family Services and Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy, professor of Native American Studies at Humboldt State are collaborating to study the impact of cultural practices and ceremony and to rethink Native American Mental Health.
