There is controversy regarding these clans. When I did these it was way before Standing Bear Park here and other interest in the clans that claim there are only seven. These clans were given to me by an elder Melvin Hardman.
The man gave me the names not too long before he passed, along with some other information I've never shared regarding herbs and such. That seems to be such a feared topic.
I will say he talked about "Evening Primrose" the Indians used for the heart. I've read it is now
an accepted therapy used by the medical world. ? ?
He told me there were twelve peace pipes to go with each clan, which have all been lost now. I was named under the last one and since then it has disappeared. A man on line asked to will one to me. Gramma Lucille Big Goose Feathers about fainted when I asked her about that.
"OH no don't let him send it to you, that will cause all kinds of trouble!" ? ?
There are folks who agree with me when I say, "so much has been lost, the culture isn't even the same.
