Welcome Jordan Village Connecticut
From one of my old stomping grounds while visiting our elders, now our ancestors.
A notice to all of my friends and followers,
this will be a two-part posting and you will see why.
Without naming names or giving ‘Sacred information,’ to all of those phony Indians around this person’s town,
I am a teacher of our culture, so after a battle with my mind, against what my ancestors would want, I lost again and will write this post, because, I must teach.
This persons just had a grandfather cross (native funeral), and for years he (her grandfather), often spoke, with a twinkle in his eyes, about a ‘Blanket Ceremony’ for his wife, her grandmother.
This is a very sad, sacred ceremony, for the family, and only, if requested, and it is about a crossing of a family member.
After a few Emails I noticed the name of her grandfather, I know this family.
Not only do I know this family, I was one of the holders of the Sacred Blanket, along with Shechaim Ohjieshan Zeak (my father) and two WW-2 veterans.
Shechaim Ohjieshan Tallfox (my grandfather) was the leader of our people at this time.
This ceremony, my 1st blanket present ceremony, was for her grandmother,
a WW-2 Veteran (Nurse).
A Sacred Blanket Presenting Ceremony
is a ceremony for family and friends of the deceased, as a way to thanking
Kiehtan (Creator), for the care and blessing received by the deceased for a lifetime.
And for the love and care at Kiehtans side forever.
Actually, it is for the loved ones that are having a problem still missing this loved one.
Because the post is a long posting, even for me,
To be continued.
Part Number Two to follow soon.
