The purpose of this phenomenological research study was to describe the meaning and essence of the lived experience of Ojibwa and Cree women healers. The research question, "What is the experience of being an Ojibwa or Cree woman healer?" was asked of a purposive sample of four indigenous women healers, aged 48 to 59, residing in Canada and the United States. The data were collected and analyzed utilizing methods to preserve integrity within the indigenous community. Seven themes emerged from the data. They are as follows: recognizing and unfolding the healing gift; placing faith in the healing ability; mastering indigenous culture, values and traditions; wholesome use of self; interconnection with all; living a balanced, circular life way; and embracing mankind. These seven themes can be employed by nurse healers and/or holistic nurses to practice the art of holistic nursing.
