Tobacco as a gift.
The question being asked the
most today is still about tobacco, so we, the Native Americans answering that
question are still not answering it well enough?
Tobacco used by my
ancestors, Traditional Native Americans from New England was not Cigarettes, it
was, it is, and should always be herbs found or grown by the Tribal Clan
Grandmother with help from the Tribal Clan Mothers.
These herbs are called
Kinnick. Kinnick ( our native word for tobacco).
This tobacco is used for
anything sacred like, prayer, ceremonies like naming, funeral’s, weddings,
powwows, gatherings, pot luck, paw, paus and so on., gifting, cleansing us and
the area around us.
I have many blogs and
websites about our tobacco however, if my answers leaves you with more questions

spoil spammers spiders.
Just to name a few.
