  • Northern Lights

    Every nation has their own beliefs about natural occurrences. What does yours say the northern lights? I was told here that it is a good sign that the next day would be a good day. :)

    ~! Northern Lights

    I'm ojibwe from MN & my elders told me that when they are Northern Lights out, they are "Having a Welcome" to someone who just died. Like, after a traditional funeral/burial for a someone who passed, at night, there will be lights in the North...duh...and they will be sort of white & light green. They move also because "They are dancing." You also can't point or even stare @ them for a long time. I stared @ them for a long time once and they started 2 move...i got scared...Well, this is what I was told about them.

        I seen them for the first time ever in my life when we went to Sisseton, SD on the way to Bismarck. I thought it was cool but my bro got scared of them. hahaha

        My grandma said it means the warriors are coming home...
        The only time its too late to start dancing is when you're dead.

              Spirits dancing in the sky.

              Don't know exactly why, but I wouldn't whistle at them.

                        I was told ur not posta whistle at them because they will come down and take you away.
                        I was also told..the reason why they come out is
                        They are celebrating a new coming to the spirit world.
                        AND
                        I was also told if you whistle, they dance for you
                        Unless that was when you ball up your fists and rub your fingers together..forgot

                          hmm... dont' know what my nation says about them... I guess I'm gonna have to ask someone at home. But when I worked in Denali, you can hear them... so we would howl to let other workers and people staying at the hotel know they were out so they could enjoy them as well.
                          Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

                            During these afternoons, I suddenly saw an elderly couple. They are around 80 years old. The old couple walk hand in hand. They chirped and chatted like a young couple. Husband talks, wife laughs and vice versa.

                            After walking for a while, the old couple helped each other to sit on a ghe...
