    I'm am so very Grateful for all who shared their time and their journey with me today, and thankful for letting me share my journey and stories with you.
    I'm also so proud for all who showed such strength and courage in facing the unknown, proving what the teachings say, in that you are stronger than you think, and that we as a group in helping each other, are stronger than we think.

    May all your prayers asked for, be recieved,,,
    Namaste,,,

    I have in the past addressed the skirt and dress need with my ojibwe family. The explaination fell more on the side of tradition, stating a connection with our grandmothers and mother earth and representing ourselves in a modest way so as to keep our mind focused. I have always challenged that we as women could still represent in a modest way and focus on the ceremony without being made to wear traditional women's dress. Mother earth wears no clothes. So with respect to what Mr. Bell has stated, I am in agreeance that it should not be of significance. The ceremony is about my connecting and It is important to feel centered and comfortable to do so.

      I am going to retract my acceptance of the invite and open my spot to someone else that might find it beneficial to attend.

    Mike Pierre
    A member of the Long Lake First Nation in Ontario, and descendent to a line of chiefs and medicine men, Mike was given the name Mashkodebizhiki Inini, Buffalo Spirit Man.
    The name one receives acts as a governing framework where each name reminds us of our strengths, weaknesses, and of our role of service to the people. For Buffalo Spirit Man, this meant a service to respect all Creation – things alike and unalike. Buffalo Spirit Man became a Skaabé, a worker or helper, at ceremonies including the Sun Dance – a very powerful and sacred ceremony. Occurring during the summer months, the Sun Dance tests and strengthens one’s faith, mind, body and spirit. Fasting for four days and nights as a means to demonstrate their worth to the spirit world and earn what they are asking for, dancers seek guidance and healing from the ceremony.

    Isabel's answers ring true for this event. Thanks Isabel...
    Every ceremony i have attended required Women in a skirt or some kind of wrap, for lack of words.
    At a Womens cycle time they are asked not to attend.
    Tobacco is a standard, pouch form is best and as pointed out can be shared, given to another to share or offer to buy a small bit from another.
    I personally will bring a cigar form, to coincide with my Yoruba religion Spirit guide.
    The $10 does not go to Winnipeg Spirituality, and thier is a cost for holding it St Norbert. I can tell you its not cheao as a friend of mine from Virginia wanted to hold an event there, but they were asking for to much money.

    The teachings will run foe approximately an hour and a half with the sweat to start around 3:00

    Thanks Isabel Cuerrier for taking time to try and clarify some things. Unfortunately, I am not able to come but hope there is something similar soon or I may just have to find one in my community as I am very interested in this. Enjoy the event!! I believe it will be very cleansing and enlightening...Be well.

    So did I miss the answer to a couple questions previously asked? Is the sweat lodge taking place between 1-5pm or after 5? Is it possible to carpool? Without a vehicle on Sunday. Thanks so much for the other info. Looking forward to this event.

    Two things:

    Is it true that women who are menstrating should not attend?

    Is carpooling a possibility?
