What has always fascinated me is the spirituality of the Indians. I have participated in sweat lodge ceremonies and you would be amazed at how much it puts you in touch with your inner self. For many years the ceremonies were banned by the government because the Indians would not claim it as a religion. There the government of the United States of America (the home of the free) classified it as a pagan ceremony and would not allow it to be practiced. Fortunately there were medicine men that carried on the tradition in secret. I'm now also fortunate to live about forty miles from a reservation. The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians have pow wows and other events that I attend. If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of these you shouldn't miss it. They're held all over the country and you can learn a lot about about the culture.
After all these years the Native Americans are getting something back at the casinos they are now allowed to have on their reservations. Of course our government now wants a part of the take. We need to let our elected officials know that it's wrong. We need to stay out of their business. That's all they need is more government interference. Learn all you can about the beliefs and traditions of the Indians. You won't regret it.
