Gift giving the American native way.
Unfortunately for me, many of the blog questions have been coming from Canada so, please be mindful of the fact that even though it is true that many of my people traveled, not knowing what a boarded was, this blog answers questions from the knowledge of my elders now ancestors.
There are many ways for you to ask your question.
Question of the day.
Does one have to give a gift at a traditional native wedding?
Every gift on Mother Earth is given by Creator freely, therefore, every gift must be given freely, no matter what the ceremony.
That said, Creator never said that you cannot give a gift your way.
Most Spiritual leaders frown on money gifts as an after though, Kinnick~ Kinnick (Herbs) would be the preferred way to gift.
You may gift or not gift whatever you wish to gift, your gift is the correct gift to give.
