Mission Statement

The mission of the Oshki Manidoo “New Spirit” Center is to be a healing place with a holistic approach for Native American and non-Native American youth and women to begin to embrace healthy behaviors and attitudes that will transform them, their families and communities.


Vision Statement                                                                                 

Individuals will return to their community following successful discharge with a new outlook, understanding their importance as an integral part of the larger community, chemical free and able to sustain sobriety and continue their journey toward healthy living.


Program Service Philosophy                                                           

The Oshki Manidoo Center is a culturally specific treatment program for Native American and non-Native American youth and women.  Program emphasis includes substance use disorder, cultural foundations, physical wellness and strengthening family connections.  


Our purpose is to reduce the disproportionate representation of Native American youth and women in the legal systems and provide a holistic healing, culturally sensitive, treatment-based alternative for a healthy lifestyle. 



We are situated in Northern Minnesota on the edge of the city of Bemidji, Minnesota nestled on 40 beautiful wooded acres.  Oshki Manidoo Center is centrally located between the three largest Indian reservations in the state.
