Apached,

No that isn't just your tribe. I have two different friends who both work as casino security guards in two separate states.

Both have seen ghosts at their casinos. One was even taped on the security camera.

Do they make a big deal out of it?


No. They were both told not to mention it because "Gamblers are extremely superstitious!?"

This comes from my wife's family in Ireland "To name a thing is to call a thing." So you don't speak of "bad things" because to say it is to call it to you. Another thing they believe is that you can protect your house against lightning by planting a holly tree by the front yard.

When I got my first pocket knife, my Grampa told me that I was never to touch live coals with a steel knife or any sharp steel or someone in my family would get cut.

He also told me to always give respect to missipeshiew before getting in any boat or canoe and never get between missipeshiew and thunderbirds.

lol that is kinda funny you know my aunties would always tease about those Souix boys. well I did not marry one but I had his baby, aye lol, so when my daughter was still inside me, she would kick so hard that it would leave bruises on the outside of my belly. anyway my auntie Bugg would say see that is what you get for messing with a souix boy, that poor baby is trying to kick her own azz. lmao, and do not think that they do not offer to make her some puppy soup all the time. lol good humor.

Dang if this didn't come true.

Ironically, my close friend who was alway down on a certain tribe... ended up marrying someone from that tribe! *L


What does your family tell you? Superstitions?

There is something about birds in our stories. not about in the house more like, if a bird flies into your window of your house or car then someone is going to die.

JENN-you are the sweetest person I have met in a very long time, and I hope you have a great holiday, and that there are smiles on the kids faces. thanks for the plug on the cruz you are a rock

some of the ones I remember from growing up are
DON'T WHISTLE AT NIGHT IF YOU DO YOU MUST KNOCK ON A WOOD SURFACE (IT CALLS THE SPIRITS)
DON'T LET YOUR KIDS RUN AROUND AND MAKE LOTS OF NOISE OUTSIDE AT NIGHT(BRINGS THE SPIRIT)
DO NOT LET YOUR BABY LOOK AT ITSELF IN THE MIRROR(SHE WILL BE SAD AND WONDER WHO IS TAKING CARE OF THAT BABY)
DO NOT LET YOUR BABIES FACE BE EXPOSED AT NIGHT(THE SPIRITS WILL SEE HER)
DO NOT POINT WITH YOUR POINTER FINGER(NOT SURE)
YOU CAN ONLY TELL STORIES FROM THE FIRST SNOWFALL TILL THERE IS NO MORE SNOW.(SOMETHING ABOUT IT DISTURBS THE SLEEPING ANIMALS.)
WHILE YOU ARE COOKING YOU CAN NOT TASTE THE FOOD THAT YOU PREPARE FOR CEREMONIES, THE FIRST PLATE GOES TO THE SPIRIT.(UMM RESPECT I THINK)
WHEN A WOMEN HAS HER MOON SHE CANNOT SHARE FOOD OR PREPARE FOOD FOR OTHERS, AND SHE HAS TO HAVE HER OWN DISHES AND STUFF. ALSO IF A YOUNG GIRL HAS HER MOON SHE CANNOT SHARE HER DRINK WITH ANOTHER CHILD, OR STEP OVER BOYS IN GYM CLASS OR WHAT EVER.
YOU NEVER STEP OVER KIDS TOYS YOU HAVE TO MOVE THEM ASIDE.
WHEN THE GIRL GETS HER MOON THE FIRST TIME HER FEET CANNOT TOUCH THE GROUND FOR A YEAR.
MOURNING IS THE SAME THING, NO CONTACT WITH ANYTHING FRESH TO THE WORLD NO SWIMMING IN THE LAKES, NO TOUCHING BABIES.
OH AND THE BIRD THING, MY AUNTIE ALWAYS TOLD ME IF A BIRD FLIES INTO YOUR WINDOW AT HOME OR IN THE CAR THEN SOMEONE WILL DIE. BAD NEWS WILL COME.

well there is more, but I am at the end of my day and I still must send some love out.

don't whistle at night b/c it calls the bad spirits

don't leave your hand print in the snow

don't sweep the house at night and don't let the broom sweep across your feet

don't point at the stars

don't pick up change b/c you'll pick up others misfortune

when working on an outfit or making jewelery, don't think bad thoughts or use bad language

i don't know the reasons behind all of these. although some of them are apparent, i've questioned others and still haven't ever recieved answers - it's just understood as something we don't do and not ever really explained or talked about... i know there are plenty more, i just can't think of 'em now

Well...some about money and love
*Never put your purse on the floor- you will lose all your possessions
*Never put an eggshell in an ash tray- you will not earn any money
*When your left hand is itching- you will receive money
*When your right hand is itching- you will spend lots of money
*When your nose is tickling, you either get a punch on it or you are layed soon.
*When you hiccup, he/she thinks of you but kisses another
*When you buy her a pair of shoes, she will walk away with it and never come back to you...

Those are pretty good, some I'd forgotten and subsequently will send me barrelin' down into the depths of Hell! aye!

Don't swim in the river or lake when it's dark.
Don't look at your cousin like that. Aye!
Don't marry a Cheyenne, opps, too late!
Birds flyin' in your house is bad luck, gotta snuff 'em out if they do.
Don't point or whistle at the Northern Lights.
Don't wear red in the winter time.
Don't post on the post number 13 of any threads!

Thass about it!

My son-in-law is from Norway House, Manitoba and I asked him...... he said that you are not to whistle at the Northern Lights ....... It will bring them down to you. He said he tried it and when they came down he went in the house......

Mato,


I had a similar experience.

We were staying with some friends near Hobbema, Alberta (Pigeon Lake), and we saw the Northern Lights. I naively pointed at the Northern Lights and they started coming toward us. When they got directly over us, they started coming down! We all started walking quickly to the house. VERY QUICKLY!

Also,

I saw something else in Canada that I will never forget....


We were at this one powwow at the Paul Band Reserve outside of Edmonton. My cousin and I were at the car taking a break from dancing. We saw the northern lights coming from two directions toward the dance arena. When they met, they began spiraling into the dance arena!

Then we heard screaming!

Then we watched the northern lights spiral back out of the arena and back into the sky!

When we went back to the dance arena, we learned somebody at one of the drums had just died!

(It was the father of the sons, of one of today's top drums)!

Don't use a knife on the stove or cook with it.
If you climb out a window, you have to climb back in the same way.


Don't whistle at night or your face will go crooked. I always remember the little ditty, "Sing at the table, whistle in bed, the devil will get you, before you're dead". So I NEVER whistled at night.

My ex husband did all the time, even though I warned him, and his face DID go crooked.

my grandpa said to never eat the heel on a loaf of bread first unless you plan on eating them both, bad luck not to eat them together!
