Thank you Teresa. It’s certainly an interesting experience and wish I could explain it more but it’s been a long time since I’ve attended one. I was doing some research for this piece to fill in some of the gaps though and found that there are a lot of tribes that do these ceremonies. Originally the tradition came from one tribe but was eventually adopted by others. There’s a lot of controversy around it, however those who are able to perform these ceremonies properly are those who follow the traditions and spend 8 years in apprenticeship training to perform these traditions.
