Did you know?
The Talking Feather is a communication devise used by various tribes to ensure a person's
right to speak without interruption from others. The leader of a meeting would first hold the
Talking Feather, and then pass it around the room or give it to those who requested a turn.
The feather typically held a special meaning to that particular tribe, and it would be decorated
with distinctive colors and symbols. In other tribal communities, a Talking Stick would be used
in the same manner.

The idea of full dress in preparation for a battle comes not from a belief that it will add to the
fighting ability. The preparation is for death in case that should be the result of the conflict. Every
Indian wants to meet the Great Spirit so the dressing up is done whether I imminent danger in
an oncoming battle or a sickness or injury at times of peace.

A Native to know :
Chief Joseph was a major celebrity during his lifetime. Born in what is now northeastern Oregon
in 1840, he was the son of the first Nez Perce Christian converts, also named Joseph, who raised
Chief Joseph to support peace with the whites-until the government betrayed the elder Joseph
and the Nez Perce. Chief Joseph succeeded his father's position in 1871. After several skirmishes
and difficulties with the U.S. government, he became an eloquent speaker against injustice and
inequality, and spoke in support of the freedom of the Native people.

Did you know?
The word "Shaman" originated in Siberian, but today some Native tribes and many non-Natives,
especially anthropologists, use this term to describe a Native American healer who dwells with
the underworld, the supernatural, and the spirits. Individuals who are true shamans will not write
a book or make a public appearance about their work, nor will they advertise their practice or
speak of it in public. A shaman can only be found by word of mouth, and those who practice
ancient customs are rare. They differ from Native healers, who often mix traditional medicine
with unconventional methods and act more as a physician to the community.

Did you know?
A medicine bag, or medicine bundle, is carried by many Native people to hold sacred objects,
such as stones, animal talons, totem, sacred herbs, or other prized possessions. It is worn on
their body and kept close to them at all times. These items protect the individual and are used
during sacred ceremonies or events. A Totem is an object (animal, plant, etc.) that an individual
is intimately related to. The person has a bond with this item, and uses it for prayer or to draw
strength from during times of need.
