This question has been coming up many times?
The words Gate keeper is an occult religious word used in Shamanism ceremonies.
These religious organizations worship another god, most have more than one god!
There was, is and should never be a
"Gatekeeper" in a true traditional Eastern Woodland Native American
If this is what you are interested in then there are many websites and bloggers willing to help you in your quest.
However, if you are interested in an answer about a true traditional Eastern Woodland American Native ceremony, like our Gatherings, Paw-paus and Sacred Powwows, our people never use the words gate keeper!
This would be an insult to Creator!
The person at the East, the only place to enter and exit out gatherings, is a Spiritual leader or one of his or her students, there only to help you understand our ceremonies!
You may have noticed while traveling around the internet, many people teaching about our ceremonies will not correctly match up with what the elders taught as the truth.
Many times the teaching is by non native people or someone not from our area.
Occult (Shamanism Occult Religion) was allowed to make its way into our culture after first contact, some of their teachings came along with them!
In our Sacred Ceremony known today as a Circle, entering was always from the east, the sun rises from the east making it easy to see what was going on within this circle.
Before first contact all Sacred Ceremonies were at this east so, this became sacred also.
You may have notices that sometimes even I used this satanic explanation because it seemed to be an easy way to explain, I was wrong!
This must stop.
