Traditional Elders' Statement on Social Media and Sacred Ceremonies

(1/2) > >>

From elders of numerous tribes meeting for World Peace and Prayer Day. Their central concern was media like Youtube and Tik Tok where ceremonies or healing, both real and false, were being posted, especially by younger Natives or alleged Natives who seemed unaware or indifferent of the harm they were doing.

If you are part of the sacred then you are also part of the protection. The misuse of sacred items, symbols, and ceremonies whether by individuals or groups, as well as through social media(s) is a corruption of the sacred. If we do not understand how or why this happens, the first part of protection is the willingness to have the courage and good heart to learn with compassion.
