People do not pay to be part of a Sacred Pipe Ceremony or Inipi. All monies are based upon a person's willingness to support what they love and care about.
Any charges are for the teaching element, the sharing of knowledge acquired through years of personal sacrifice and a commitment to this walk of life.
In learning some of these traditions and understanding we hope to be part of and help reignite this way of thinking and being that rights the wrongs, and is committed to the health of future generations of all beings.
