Last Sunday, I visited Minnehaha Falls; there by the water I experienced a presence of Native guardians of this once sacred place. I had no offerings with me so I promised the spirits to come back and pay respect in the traditional way of my ancestors. Last night, I had a vision. On June 22nd, the summer solstice day I would have to do my traditional shamanic ceremony at the place of my present stay and after the ceremony, about an hour later we will proceed to the Minnehaha Falls. There by the water I would have to present a gift to a native representative of the Ojibwe tribe - a stone and a branch of juniper. We'll walk together to the junction of two rivers where we'll choose a tree that would become barisaa - a sacred tree. We'll tiehadik ( a ceremonial scarf) on the tree's branch. This will initiate a healing process for the people and the land.This ceremony will connect the native lands and traditions of Mongolia & Siberia with Minnesota land and the traditions of the Ojibwe Indians. At the moment, I am waiting to hear from my Ojibwe friend if any of his people will be available on Friday for the ceremony.
I will appreciate your assistance in this matter.
