I never post here but....
Post # 1
I am interested in old/(ancient) and also modern Native American religion/Magic and wondering if you could drop a link for a good site I tried google but I can't get anything but prayers which I like them but not much about what I want to learn so if someone could help me that would be great :)

First of all you would need to ask yourself which Tribe you are talking about. There is no such thing as a general Native American anything. Beliefs and practices varied greatly from Tribe to Tribe.

The only way to learn the beliefs of a particular Tribe is to study with the Elders of that Tribe. And most First Nations peoples get quite annoyed when someone who is not of their Tribe attempts to borrow their beliefs. They consider it one more instance of the White Man stealing what is theirs. If you are part of a Tribe then you need to be turning to your Elders for guidance and not random strangers who probably haven't a clue what your people believe.

When the First Nations peoples (they don't like the term Native American) were driven off their lands and placed on reservations they were forbidden their religion, their customs, even their language. Children were bussed off the reservations to a White school and forced to submit to White ways. It has only been in the recent past that the First Nations peoples have been free to try to reacquire their language and their religion and practice both again. So do understand that while your request may be well-meant it is highly offensive to many of the First Nations.
