would anyone out there know of or know where to find out info for a Native harvest ceremony or ritual? Something for the Lenni Lenape of Iroquois ?

Any info would be great!
Thanks,
Chris

Chris,

Can I ask at the sake of sounding rude why you are looking for this info?

Mike

I run a living history program for 7th and 8th graders. We grew a 3 Sisters garden last yr. I followed the discription in "Of Plimouth Plantation". Even though that was Wamponoag, I would like to possibly use something from the Lenape or Iroquois since I am in NY State

Chris,


OK! Now I get it. I hesitate to go into specific Iroquois Harvest Ceremony "doings" - simply because it just isn't something that can be done outside of an Iroquoi community.

Sort of like holding your own Mass or funeral rite w/o an ordained priest.

Tou could however check out this book by a good friend of mine - "Giving Thanks" by Jake Swamp.

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Giving-Thanks/Jake-Swamp/e/9781880000540

It is a simple thanksgiving message which is ok for public consumption. It also is the first thing spoken at any gathering of Iroquois people - including Harvest Ceremony.
