Prayer fans and feathers are an integral part of life for indigenous cultures.
The Ancestors left precious teachings around feathers, their healing powers, and ability to move energy, connecting us with Father Sky and taking prayers up to the Creator.
Today the use of feathers for smudging and other purposes became popular outside indigenous cultures, however most people do not understand the spiritual power of those alliances.
Join Patrick Scott, Diné medicine man, as he talks about the traditions and protocols around the use of feathers according to Diné culture, the Native American Church, and Peyote ways of the US and Canada.
Patrick will talk about the main birds used in ceremony and the energy they each carry, what they are used for in the prayer ways.
Participants are welcome to send in questions they would like Patrick to cover regarding this subject by Wednesday, August 10th.
There will also be a Q&A at the end.
