What we're about

We are the NAIC: Native American Indigenous Church. Our mission is to preserve and educate as well as practice Native American and Indigenous spiritual practices including traditional and natural medicine.

Especially, we would like to support Mother Earth Spirituality and Native culture in the Brooksville, Springhill, Dade City, Wesley Chapel, Weeki Watchi, Hernando Beach and North Tampa- Central region.

We generally host monthly NAIC Sacred Healing Ceremonies of one type or another. Depending on many factors from season to weather or from necessity of our community... the ceremonies could be a sacred sweat, Pipe, Breath, Blanket, Drumming, Vision Quest etc.

Our ceremonies are always free, however, it is required that you join NAIC before participating (APM Level (http://www.somaveda.com/naic-join2/)). We are a real church and have many other activities here on the Sanctuary! Lets be clear. We have never charged a fee and will never charge any fee to attend a Sacred Ceremony!

NAIC is an inter-tribal organization and our ceremonies do not follow the path of any one specific tribe or tribal organization. Ceremonies are generally mixed gender. We are open to hosting men or women only ceremony if there is enough interest to support. However, having said this we do run the healing ceremonies in a strict fashion and all decorum is observed. No drugs or Alcohol of any kind please!

Participants are expected to help set up and to clean up the lodge after each ceremony. Bring your drum! Bring your prayer list!

Various elders, men and women will be assisting and or leading various aspects of ceremonies.

This group is for anyone desiring to practice Native American Spirituality NAIC style.

Beginners and advanced welcome as long as your genuine about keeping it real and positive!

We will be listing other services and or activities as we can here.

Over the years our family (NAIC) traditional pipe and tobacco has evolved into a well rounded healing ceremony. It does not favor any particular or specific tribe and is in that way eclectic. Our personal family is Crow and Sac and Fox. NAIC has more than 20 native and or indigenous tribal nations currently represented.

Contact: [masked]
Phone: (706)[masked] Ask for Dr. J!

If your new to Native Ceremony or are seeking healing we are experts and can guide you in a good way.
