Inipi Wakan

 Sweat Lodge

Inipi Wakan

Said to be the oldest rite, the Sweat Lodge Ceremony is one of purification. Individuals crawl to the left (ladies first) and clockwise to their spots. Hot lava rocks are heated outside of the lodge on a fire. They are then carried into a cloth covered willow frame hut to be placed into a pit. After the door is shut the inside of the lodge is pitch black with the exception of the red stones which we often refer to as the Grandmothers and Grandfathers.

 Herbs such as cedar and sweetgrass are then placed on the stones to assist in the healing of the Ceremony. Hot steam envelopes the lodge as the leader pours water upon the glowing stones. The loud drum throbs steadily as the singers join in with the appropriate songs. Participants are encouraged to connect in their own prayer to Great Spirit (God) while focusing on what is needing attention at that particular time. When the time is right someone calls out, Aho Mitakuye Oyasin! or All of My Relations! The flap is then opened. We do this for 4 doors and then exit the lodge to enjoy a feast together.

Arriving 1/2 hour to 1 hour prior to the stated time for each inipi is suggested. By arriving early individuals become better acquainted and allows them time to make prayer ties. These ties are used in to project intentions (make prayers) before hand. Details like this may vary according to the situation or the intercessor. Lodges may last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. Please bring a towel and a change of clothing if necessary. Women typically wear a long dress that covers the shoulders or a skirt and t-shirt. Men usually wear swim trunks. We would ask that women having their sacred menses or moon time to stay out of the lodge in order to maintain the energy in a flowing manner. Ladies on menses are welcome to stay in the house if they like. Please leave your pets at home and do not attend our Ceremonies intoxicated. We are happy to offer a clean, drug free environment.

In our lineage it is tradition to offer tobacco to the person pouring water so we require everyone to bring this offering. We do not place a fee on Ceremonies. However, donations are what helps us to continue offering Native Teachings. We can always use donations of firewood, flat cedar leaf, sweetgrass, prayer tie material, and blankets. Monetary donations are the most needed. We look forward to joining in prayer to share with one another.

Sagte zu den ältesten Ritus sein, ist die Sweat Lodge Zeremonie eine Reinigung. Personen auf der linken Seite (Ladies first) kriechen und im Uhrzeigersinn um ihre Plätze. Hot Lava Felsen außerhalb der Lodge auf einem Feuer erhitzt. Sie werden dann in einem Tuch bedeckt Weide Rahmen Hütte in einer Grube angeordnet werden durchgeführt. Nachdem die Tür geschlossen ist das Innere der Hütte ist pechschwarz mit Ausnahme der roten Steine​​, die wir oft als die Großmütter und Großväter. Kräuter wie Zeder und sweetgrass werden dann auf die Steine ​​gelegt, um bei der Heilung von der Zeremonie zu unterstützen. Heißer Dampf Umschläge die Lodge als Marktführer gießt Wasser auf die glühenden Steine. Das laute Trommel pocht stetig die Sänger kommen in mit den entsprechenden Liedern. Die Teilnehmer werden ermutigt, in ihrem eigenen Gebet zu Great Spirit (Gott) zu verbinden, während die Konzentration auf das, was die Aufmerksamkeit benötigen zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt. Wenn die Zeit reif ist jemand ruft, Aho Mitakuye Oyasin! oder Alle meine Beziehungen! Die Klappe wird dann geöffnet. Wir tun dies für 4 Türen und beenden Sie dann die Hütte ein Fest zusammen zu genießen.

Se dice que es el rito más antiguo, la ceremonia de temascal es una de purificación. Las personas que se arrastran hacia la izquierda (las damas primero) y en sentido horario para sus spots. Piedras de lava calientes se calientan exterior de la casa de campo en un incendio. A continuación, se realizan en un paño cubierto choza marco de sauce para ser colocado en un pozo. Cuando la puerta se cerró el interior de la casa de campo es completamente negro, con la excepción de las piedras de color rojo, que a menudo nos referimos como las abuelas y abuelos. Hierbas como el cedro y la hierba dulce se colocan sobre las piedras para ayudar en la curación de la ceremonia. Sobres de vapor caliente de la casa de campo como el líder vierte agua sobre las piedras ardientes. El tambor fuerte palpita constantemente a medida que los cantantes se unen con las canciones adecuadas. Se anima a los participantes a conectarse en su propia oración a Gran Espíritu (Dios), mientras que se centra en lo que está necesitando la atención en ese momento. Cuando llegue el momento que alguien dice en voz alta, Aho Mitakuye Oyasin! o Todos mis parientes! La aleta se abre. Esto lo hacemos por 4 puertas y salga del lodge para disfrutar de una fiesta juntos.
