This past month (December) there was a change at the top of my Native American teaching blog questions.
Questions about native American naming was by far the most asked about question.
Are you wondering why?
Because of a life time of powwows, paw-was, and gatherings (from 6 to 71 years) I believe the answer lies in the fact that Indian country is now inundated with far too many phony Medicine men and women looking for ways to part you from your money!
A true Traditional Native American Elder charged with the burden of receiving names from Creator to a new follower, must never charge for doing Creators business, NEVER!
If there is a charge, you are facing a phony!
