The Traditional Sweat of an Eastern Woodland People
Sheffield Massachusetts is part of New England and yes, people from your area did do this type of Sweat.
In fact, a number of tribes in and around your area would often send members to my grandfathers meeting and ceremonies.
Chief Homer St. Francis
of the St. Francis Sokoki Band of the Abenaki at Missisquoi
was a good friend of my father (Shechaim Ziek)
Grandfather (Shechaim Tallfox)
and a real true teaching Mentor American Natives Elder for me
and so many others while we were growing up in Uncasvillage!
Pam & Ed Lincoln real good friends of ours, (Donna and I) and belong to a tribe in your state and Ed’s father, Shechaim Lincoln was one of the regulars visitors.
Shechaim Chief (3) Bears of the same tribe also made many trips to our people and another of my Mentors while growing up as a Traditionalist.
We love and miss them dearly and miss the New England Ares since my retirement.
