so confusing, so what’s a person to do.

If we do not live, talk, act, eat, dress as they
some terrible calamity is sure to befall us.
even their own sects cant agree with any of
their other sects.
The only difference between them it seems

Buddhism in Native American Religion,
Native American practice in Which Craft,
Which Craft practice in Christianity, and the

What is it that is at the bottom of all religion?
What one common goal are they all trying to
What did each of their Gods, and/or Goddesses
try to instruct them to do before man come along
