Elder Philip Campiou is from Driftpile First Nation and is actively involved in teaching holistic approaches to health and healing in schools across Alberta. As a young man, his father taught Phillip how to be self-sufficient and live off the land. Inherent in these teachings was an unwavering respect for Mother Earth and the spirituality held by all Her inhabitants. As an adult, Phillip has devoted his life to sharing his knowledge of traditional values and lifestyle.
