Native American ‘grandfather’ as God

Welcome to the visitor from the City of Bellingham Washington

Looking for information about

Native American ‘grandfather’ as God?

Why do Native Americans call their god grandfather?

Very good question.

Our ancestors relate to age, as with time in our culture, Mother Earth and everything on and around her as wisdom.

A grandmother (Objiasan) is Mother Earth or grandfather (Ohjieshan) is Kiehtan Creator and a male and/or female that has lived the culture and teaching of the ancestors are wise with age.

Since (Kiehtan) Creator created everything including grandmother and grandfather and grandmother and grandfather cannot create Creator, it would therefore make perfect sense to call Creator Grandfather, would it not?

And

Mother Earth we call Objiasan.

So we call the eldest female in knowledge about our culture and wisdom to apply it in today’s world Objiasan, Head Clan Mother.
