Re: Any Cherokee tradtions?

  • *Traditions I should look more closely and spell check before posting
  • If you are looking for NA traditions, we used the Apache Blessing: Apache Blessing - original version Now you will feel no rain,for each of you will be shelter for the other.Now you will feel no cold,for each of you will be warmth to the other.Now there will be no loneliness,for each of you will be companion to the other.Now you are two persons,but there is only one life before you.May beauty surround you both in thejourney ahead and through all the years,May happiness be your companion andyour days together be good and long upon the earth. Treat yourselves and each other with respect, andremind yourselves often of what brought you together.Give the highest priority to the tenderness,gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.When frustration, difficulties and fear assail your relationship,as they threaten all relationships at one time or another,remember to focus on what is right between you,not only the part which seems wrong.In this way, you can ride out the storms whenclouds hide the face of the sun in your lives - remembering thateven if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there.And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of yourlife together, it will be marked by abundance and delight.----------- Apache Blessing - edited version we used Treat yourselves and each other with respect, andremind yourselves often of what brought you together.Give the highest priority to the tenderness,gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves.When frustration, difficulties and fear assail your relationship,as they threaten all relationships at one time or another,remember to focus on what is right between you,not only the part which seems wrong.In this way, you can ride out the storms whenclouds hide the face of the sun in your lives - remembering thateven if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there.And if each of you takes responsibility for the quality of yourlife together, it will be marked by abundance and delight.May beauty surround you both in thejourney ahead and through all the years,May happiness be your companion andyour days together be good and long upon the earth.    
  • Yeah, I read about that being from a movie online. I read somewhere that it was written by a guy named Stan Davis, but upon researching Davis I found it it written before he was born. I found the Southern Cherokee Nation of Kentucky site and signed up. I just thought it would be neat idea. We probably wont do anything. Thanks everyone.
