Offering Smoke: Sacred Tobacco Ceremony #indigenous

The sacred tobacco plant spirit has been a blessing in my life. I love reading about the experiences that people have when they work with tobacco in a respectful way. Here is one from NowMomentJourney

Since I am interested in learning and sharing content about indigenous peoples, I find that many of the cultures and traditions are from around the globe.  Here in the US, it is harder to locate authentic and accurate information about indigenous people, but it is possible.

One of the ways that I connect with indigenous cultures of North America is by learning about their ceremonies, more specifically the sacred tobacco ceremony.  While searching on the internet, I found a description written by Nicholas Breeze Wood which seemed to match my understanding of the sacred tobacco ceremony.
