Cassianne, you have asked what is in many of our cultures a very personal question. Since 1492, we have had to fight to protect our people, land, economy, intellectual property, and spiritual integrity. We have lost many of these battles; so, we cling jealously to what is left. For this reason, most Native communities protect their religious practices with privacy.

This is not done out of spite or racism. It is done in accordance with a community's teachings about how creation and the spiritual powers function. There are deep physical and metaphysical consequences to the appropriation and abuse of the spiritual. These acts are believed to damage our people and this land. So, we act to protect ourselves, our children and our land.

We ask that you try to understand our perspective and our actions. Failing that, that you respect our boundaries.

Now for the partial answer, I feel comfortable giving:

Native people are not monolithic. We do not practice one religion. There is more religious diversity in Native North America than there is in your average European country. Further, ceremonies are specific to different tribes. So, what one community does, the other may not.

Yes, many tribes have a sweatlodge type ceremony. Yes, it is still performed in many communities. It's function and particulars vary.

Sweat down here in S. Ga., too. Sometimes when it rains,and it's 90 outside, it's even steamy like a sweat.
