I would love to go to an Native American ceremony of any kind. The culture just fascinates me - even more so that I live in Montana. The town I live in is even a Native American name...I will email it to you. I have to send you a pic of when I went to custard or did I send it to you? Darn memory. I got my pic taken with a gentleman and he was in full dress. Nicest guy and he put up with my questions! lol
Oh, honey, I love that prayer!!! When I graduated with my bachelors, the local Native Amer folks had an "Indian" graduation ceremony for the Native grads. We had a drum circle, birdsingers, sage was burning and we wore mocassins with our grad capes. I minored in Amer Indian studies and one of my Indian teachers spoke to the class andthen gave us a token with that prayer on it.
I sooooooo needed to hear it again and it holds so much truth in regards to our addiction, doesn't it?
Thanks again sweetie and I hope you do well today, it isn't easy but we will get there!
That is a beautiful piece.
Oh I would love that shel! I didnt get a pic and would love to see it.
Do they have pow wows out there??? That is an awesome thing to attend. I dance in the local pow wows but just as a visitor. I still don't have my tribal dress because I want to get it the traditional way and not just buy it outright.
take care sweetie
It is a beautiful piece Ionote. There are lots of them.
They do have pow wows but I always felt like an intruder. Weird huh? Like i do not belong unless I know someone.
Oh hun, just go!! Trust me, they like it when people come to visit the pow wow! Especially nice people like you!! If you ever go, just remember if you go into the circle always walk clockwise around and not across, not take any pictures without permission, and you are good to go!!
I have a shawl my mom made me that I dance with. Id love to get a tribal dress. Someday.
hugs and miss you
I would like to do the same thing I am part cherokee and I am also In to pow wow I would love to get in the dress and be apart of it I think that will be kool
