Welcome to the student from Bridgeport Public Schools
One of many of our posts
about the Native Americans
in and/or around your school.
It is a good day when I open my tracker
to find any school system looking for
‘true information about
Indian and/or Native American Country culture/Ceremonies'.
Not to be too selfish,
it is a better day
when the question is about our people,
the first people of this land

For my question,
‘Fire in a circle?
If you check the internet,
there are thousands of posting about Indians
(Native to the Land),
some are even written by Native People!
The ancestors of the Native People around your state
(New England Area),
‘did not have a fire in a circle’
at their gatherings!
The Fire at our gatherings represents
Creator is not on the land in question.
Although always watching,
Creator wants to be invited to join creations for a dance or two.
In the ‘Gathering of the people’ (Paw-paus), the fire was ‘always’ in the West, the opening to the circle is ‘always’ from the East.
One would go to the West, pray for a blessing and then go to the East.
If you wish more information?
Please just ask.
