There was another time in our history where again, our ancestors forgot how to treat each other and their world was at constant warfare and sorcery was rampant. Even cannibalism existed. Another messenger was sent here to put things back in order and from this the Iroquois Confederacy also known as the Five Nations [Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca Nations] came to be. In this class you will learn about this epic story and how the Confederacy is still in existence today.
There are references in our Creation Story of these spirits, animals and traditional games that came to our people over time to help us in either a spiritual, psychological, emotional, or physical way. We also have the knowledge of the medicinal world and how that became the gift to the Bear Clan people. In this class you will learn about the origins of our Medicine Societies and knowledge of the herbal medicinal world.
