What does Traditionally Trained mean?
Traditional training simply means being apprenticed
or journeymanned. It is one of society's Oldest Forms of Education.In many cultures herbal training occurs Almost Exclusively
Traditional use occurs in the context of a Traditional Medical System. This healing system may
have evolved over hundreds of years or even thousands of years and be part of a great culture. It may be part of a smaller
or more primative culture,but the Important Point is that traditional use is the refined knowledge of many generations, carefully
evaluated and re-evaluated by many practioners of the craft.
That information should be rated highly because it has evolved
over many years in large numbers of people.

"THE TRADITION OF GIFTING (OR) BLESSING AN ELDER, TEACHER, OR HEALER"
The practicing of Medicine ways was a full time job for the responsibility, the well-being, and emotional balance of the
Tribe/Villagers belonging to the Medicine Woman/Man.
In return for her/his services, she/he was cared for by the members of the Tribe/Village. He/She always had food, shelter,
his/her needs met, assistance when it was needed, and special Spirit gifts that showed the honor and respect of her/his people.
This was how the Medicine Women/Men were "paid".
As much as many Natives consider me asking for some type of payment for my services distasteful, I have had to do it,
I deal with many Nationalities, who's customs are different from Native American beliefs, and who are unaware of the Rudeness
of Non-payment of Some Sort.
Also, I do not live within the boundaries/borders of a Tribe, where my needs would other-wise
be taken care of by the Tribal members.
Even many Native Americans have lost their way (and/or) knowledge concerning a
payment of sorts
as an Offering, Blessing, or Gifting, to an Elder, Teacher, or Healer.
This offering is Usually done BEFORE you ever even ask for anything of importance concerning a healing, instruction, or
direction,(in the "Old"days, Tobacco was given as an offering, and sometimes Sage).
It is showing honor and respect for what is being offered.
To ask for such, Without an offering, is considered to be Rude and Disrespectful.
As previously stated, even many Native Americans are Now, also unaware of this custom, because they were raised outside
of a Traditional N.A. system or home.
In my studies of other Indigneous Peoples, world-wide, one will find this same common practice, although slightly different,
depending on the individual culture.
Examples of the type of "Gifting/Blessing" you may offer for my services:
A handmade, N.A. Pipe, flute, or drum, dream-catcher, talking stick or feather
Stones, such as: tourqoise, amber, jade, aqua-marine, coral, mother of pearl, etc.
Handmade items such as clothing, moccasins, quilts, blankets, Artwork, etc.
(Handmade items actually mean more to me than money).
You do not neccasarily have to make an Indian object.
If you live near by, you could offer to work on the car,
help feed and water animals,
plant or weed a garden,
a bill, buy groceries,
make cookies, a good cake, pie, stew, or meal.
If You Prefer to make an "Offering" of cash, I ask that you let "Spirit" guide you as to the proper amount.
