Tribes, Minnesota use wellness court to fight addiction
CASS LAKE, Minn. -- Fred Isham sits near a blazing fire just outside Cass Lake on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation.
The 37-year-old tribal member helped build the fire to heat carefully selected stones that will be used in a nearby sweat lodge.
Inside the sweat lodge, Isham and others will pray and conduct spiritual Ojibwe ceremonies.
