Planting Techniques in American Indian Gardens

Planting your  garden is relatively easy after you have chosen a plot of ground and prepared it. The American Indian  garden was not like a European kitchen garden, but rather a small field, so if possible, you should think in terms of perhaps a quarter-acre. You’ll need that kind of space to produce enough corn for food and next year’s seed, because your corn should be planted in hills about 3 feet in diameter and spaced 4 feet apart in all directions. With four to six corn plants per hill, 30 or 40 hills will take up a lot of space, but you’ll also be able to plant several varieties of pole beans around the corn after the corn is about a foot tall...

Most of the time there is not any reason to reach out to other people about the American Indian Uknown Ways This is a time that experience does make a difference. So many people have been expecting or waiting for a sign from a higher power. The fact is they are taking things into their own hands. Action is the daily response and everyone is ready and willing to inform anyone with questions of what they need. This can be counter productive. When assumptions are made it is not necessarily what the other person needs to be enlightened.

As a child I was taught to not move or talk only to wait for the Spirit to move me. Being raised as an Indian yet living among the average population is a challenge...

What are we going to do today? It is likely that this question comes up quite often especially if you have children. Spending time at the beach or river is not always possible. The latest trend of watching youtube on the telephone is being studied by the medical profession. The latest advice is to limit the sedentary time to one hour per day. This can be very hard to do without some other form of home entertainment. With the less active lifestyle it is virtually impossible to keep a time limit on home entertainment ideas.

Other ideas tend to cost money that is in scarce supply for the average person. The limited reading material that I have found to be useful at giving ideas to use for home entertainment are scarce...

One of the most important things to an Indian is the American Indian Spirit Guide. There are misconceptions about this practice of becoming one with the Spirit and having a familiar guide. It can be an animal, bird or any of the creatures that live around you. When you know your spirit guide it is the equivalent of having a benefactor that shows up during times of change. It can be good for encouragement or to warn of impending danger. Either way it is something that you can identify as a communication from the world or a higher power.

To understand this better the world concerns your physical existence and day to day interaction. It involves an awareness of your surroundings to interact with your spirit guide...

I am a big fan of things with multiple uses. One of the more useful Garden ideas blackberries make great jelly and are also good for stomach problems. Things have changed so much that everyday plants have been forgotten as medicinal products. With big drug companies making and selling everything and doctors providing these to the public many home remedies are a thing of the past. That does not make them less useful it simply has made them less known. Most people these days go to the doctors and are looking for the next miracle pill. This is the trending method of seeking medicine. The current methods have changed at the doctors office so antibiotics and pain medicines are not available to the general public.

Antibiotics were discovered to...

Spirit Water and the Indian

Have you ever wondered why Indians refer to alcohol as spirit water. It has been called different names by every culture. With the Indian culture being based on the Spirit and their soul is active in this actual activity. The effect that alcohol has tends to create a boisterous or malevolent attitude. A part of the Indian Spirit is directly involved with their ancestors and when incited has the effect of proving that they are worthy as warriors. This in turn causes them to see conflicts as nothing more than a way to prove how great of a breed they are.

During the wars even when they were outnumbered the Indians would attack the opposing party. It should be noted that one of the first things they would do was circle the opposing army...

There seems to be a misunderstanding about American Indian and the Spirit. It seems to stem from a misconception about only one God. This is easily brought out into a more informed mentality by using common sense. One of the commandments is no other God before me. This if thought about implies that there are other Gods and if a person would research the topic they will find that virtually every culture has at least one. The Hindu religion is based on 12 Gods and the Egyptians have several each with a particular domain.

The one constant thing that stands out about these beliefs is a higher power. It is written that God follows the Spirit. This is a concept that is promoted by the American Indian and the Spirit...
