I like this post about indigenous religion by ReligionForBreakfast.
There are some important points here. My neo-pagan chums often have a weak understanding of indigenous religions, even though that’s what they are trying to recreate from the fragments of their own past.
- Place, relationship to land
- Power, sacredness located in the landscape
- Protocol, ceremonial obligations
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Watch the video and think about the ways your own practice measures up. Or doesn’t.
