Native American Sacred Circle

Please remember that you are on the west coast of

‘Indian Country,’ and our people are on the east coast.

You did come to one of our sites so, I am answering you about our people.

While looking for your answer you may have run across this answer

“The Medicine Wheel is representative of American Indian Spirituality”.

A much more correct answer should have been

“The Medicine Wheel is representative of

American Indian of the Plains for Spirituality.”

Because, in the East Coast,

at least in my experience, from the earlier 1940’s

until the middle 1990’s (I am 75 today 05/07/2016)

nothing was known about the ‘

Lakota Medicine Wheel’.

We have the Paw-Paus Sacred Circle.

Since the middle 1980’s my elders, now ancestors,

added a form of Pow-wow that is a spin-off of

our “Sacred Circle,” with changes to allow

people not of our tribe to also enjoy the dance.

It is true that my Grandfather Shechaim OhjieshanTallfox

(Sachem)

did visit many Plains Indian tribes

and was invited to a few Sacred Ceremonies,

as have I.

However, he and our ancestors

taught the Paw-Paus and so do I!

There is nothing wrong with their Medicine Wheel;

I just never saw it in my travels

up and down the East Coast

within any Sacred Circle

in that time period?

With the now easy travel, Internet, and Indian Casinos,

this also brought other forms of culture over to the east

and most of them not of our teaching.

We are pleased to be able to teach

to you as much as possible

about our traditional ancestors.

As you may or may not see

while traveling around the internet,

some teaching about our people

will not compute

(is no where need the same ),

as what the elders taught as the true

culture and ceremonies.

Many times it is being taught

by non-native people

or

someone not from our tribe!
