Pumpkin_16 RE: Native American Ritual
To continue "mounds"...the Mohawk buried their dead in mounds on hilltops, the reason behind this is because it was closest to the stars, their souls would leave the earth and be rejoined with their ancestors in the heavens. Some are still visible to this day and some have sank back into the earth. mounds can be hundreds to thousands of years old.
I cannot speak for all "nations" and their beliefs." there are "Shamans", "Medicine Women" & "men". They are very spiritual people, in tune with nature. They have a respect of all manner of life and an understanding of it. I know that in my families case my mother has studied under a medicine woman for years, she is always learning. Only an elder can teach you, not everyone has this ability, it is something seen in you and you are chosen for it. Like possesing the predisposition for it.
I have learned some prayers, and smudging. (cleansing) I have done this many times. I have also had my spirit animal change for whatever purpose i needed in my life at the time. I have never gone on a hilltop to "vision quest" I have not needed to go anywhere for that ability. Hope this helps. Smile

RE: Native American Ritual
Wow! That is awesome! I think Indians are the most beautiful people; spiritually and physically. I am adopted so I don't know much about my heritage, but my birth certificate says I am French Indian. Not real sure what that even means... Mixed breed? Once I drove through the panhandle of Texas and felt this overwhelming connection. Another time, here in Arkansas, during the Arts and Crafts Festival, some Indians were here performing some of their dances. I don't know what tribe they were from. One of them caught my eye and we had an immediate connection. I don't know how to describe it other than I knew that I knew him. He couldn't perform without staring at me and I felt like I was in another world. My mom noticed it, too, and so did the people around us. We talked about it on the way home and I ended up driving back to find him. He was gone. I still don't know what I would have said. The next day his picture was in the newspaper. I clipped it and kept it. I miss him. It's weird. I am dating a guy now who is half Ho Chunk Indian. So beautiful.
Dyingenglish, I love your story. I'm so envious.
I've been trying to come up with a name other than my initials... I got it! My uncle used to call me his little Indian girl. Be right back... Gonna go change my name. Smile

RE: Native American Ritual
Hmmm....wonder what a French Indian is exactly? Well I am definately a mixed breed....English, Scottish-Irish, Czekslovakian (sp?) and Cherokee Indian. I can take claim to being a daughter of the American Revolution from both sides of the family...although I have never done it. My hubby on the other hand is English and maybe a bit Indian....his ancestors were the crooks that got kicked out of the country and sent over here. I believe it too!

Cool about your experience. I wonder if you could google his name to find him.

RE: Native American Ritual
Wow, Warrior! You are a bit of everything! I guess we all are here in America.
I don't know his name. I went back to that location the next year and they were not there. I saw him for a maybe 30 minutes in my whole life and he is still with me.
I looked up French Indian and it lead me to New Orleans. When the French went to New Orleans to build the city there were few women and they were married to other workers. The Indians sold their daughters to the French men and boom... French Indian. That's kinda sad. I still want to know what tribe.

RE: Native American Ritual
There were also French Canadian men who married Native American women starting around the 16th and 17th centuries, producing offspring known as French Indians.

RE: Native American Ritual
Yeah, I'm sorry I left that out. The French men left Canada and went to New Orleans. I'm checking out more about them right now. I hate when I screw up my facts. But it looks like the French Canadian went all over; Wisconsin for fur trading, the Great Lakes area, etc.... The mix is called Metis. I never found this before in my research! I'll be back... I'm reading more.
Still haven't figured out how to change my name so if anyone knows...

RE: Native American Ritual
I've never been shown how to do that, DR....try contacting Caretaker again, if you haven't already.
