The Cherokee Sweat Lodge Ceremony

The Cherokee Sweat Lodge Ceremony

Cherokee healers say the sweat lodge ceremony has always been a part of traditional medicine. It provides a way for healers, patients and community members to join with the spirit world to improve a sick person’s health.

Helping spirits reward generous people.

"Yet the fact that healing is a mystery and a grace does not quite mean that it should be free.  We must give something in order to receive.  It is an act that honors the Great Spirit, the spirit powers, and the healer, through which these powers work.  If a patient is capable of giving yet gives nothing, or if he gives something that has little personal value, it means that he places little value on the healing.  A stingy, self-centered person is not open to healing.  There is also the matter of providing for the healer.  In the past, Native American patients gave healers blankets, furs, weapons, or horses.  Today, weapons do not put food on the table, and horses do not pay the rent or electric bills.  Determining appropriate reimbursement for healing is a delicate balancing act between one's belief in traditional values and accepting the needs of modern life.

hundreds of examples can be found in our history that clearly show indigenous spiritual elders did (and still do) accept various forms of payment for their spiritual services.

Yona FrenchHawk

Native American Spiritual Ceremonial Leader/Singer and Storyteller at Eastern Band of Cherokees  

I am a full-blooded Cherokee and member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. My siblings and I are children of an arranged marriage, Combining the energies of the Bird Clan (Mother) and the Wolf Clan (Father). The eight of us were all born and raised on the Qualla Indian Boundary (Cherokee Indian Reservation) and carry unique gifts handed down from our ancestors who thrived in the Great Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina. 
I am a steward of Turtle Island/Mother Earth and have dedicated my lifes work to sharing the ways of my Cherokee roots and people. In our prophesies we are to share with the world so that we can come back full circle. Once the sacred hoop of life is complete then we can continue forward to the next sacred destiny and lessons that will carry us to the future. I am also a singer of traditional Cherokee songs, drummer, and story-teller.

I perform Sacred Sweat Lodge Ceremonies and traditional Cherokee teachings and rites. I also offer private sessions in Spiritual Guidance and insight. Along with a rich understanding of the Cherokee plight in life I offer ways to move past the perpetual grief that our tribe (and others) suffers from and how holding sacred space to move forward without losing touch with our historic roots

The sweat lodge ceremony is a central part of Native American religion. An authoritative treatise describes it as follows:

This ceremony is nearly universal among American Indian tribes, from coast to coast and in Alaska, across Canada and Mexico today. A sweat bath is one of the main ways by which ritual purification is achieved. . . . The sweat lodge ceremony serves sev eral purposes. It is a religious rite to purify the body and a medical treatment to cure ailments or to pre vent ill health by influencing the spirits. . . . The sweat bath ceremony is such a central part of the religious beliefs and rites of tribes that it is incon ceivable that an Indian could practice his religious life in the traditional Indian way without having access to a sweat lodge. . . .
