All I can say is WOW! Sitting in a 10 ft. diameter “room” with lava rocks glowing orange and water being poured over them to create a breath stealing heat FEELS AMAZING!

I had/have so much to be thankful for and today i was able to say thank you. But, I also received some gifts.

I can’t describe it, so I won’t try. I won’t post about my experience in detail because it was very personal and I’d have to tell you my life story and the life stories of my ancestors and those I care about. I just won’t do that! :~p

If you are ever invited to a REAL sweat with REAL native people…GO!

*dancing around*

and…man can a sweat purge some sh%$!

Thank you Mother Earth.

P.S. I was given a book for my son. It is the Encyclopedia of American Indians. I opened it to a random page and got:

Ahone: The word for God used by the Powhatan Indians of Virginia. Um…folks…that is MY TRIBE. My dad’s father was born in Powhatan, Virginia in 1919. His mother Dora was a tribal member. Dora’s father’s name was Powhatan.
