An Indian spiritwalker is one, who walks with the spirits to receive guidance and wisdom to use for his people's benefit. Various techniques are used to achieve a trance-like state such as fasting, rhythmic drums and songs, psychotropic drugs, isolation or sensory deprivation and dressing in animal skins and masks. The journey to the spirit world helps to seek answers to questions on community issues such as famine, disease or individual healing; dream interpretation or weather prediction, etc. Native Americans believe that their guiding spirits meet the spiritwalker in this trance and pass on the wisdom their tribe needs.
Your challenge is to pick a photo and see what wisdom speaks to you and share your wisdom in a poem~
