    Spiritual Libations

    Native American and African religions may be practiced in different parts of the world but they still share the aspect of a unified natural and spiritual world. In the African religions, after long periods of drought, the rain making ceremony was always organized. It involved the offering of libations to the spirits that had caused the drought as away of appeasing them and seeking forgiveness for transgressions within the Native American spirituality, all processes are linked. Native American religion does not differentiate between natural and supernatural events. Accordingly, Native American spirituality honors Mother Earth and the coexistence of life with nature and animals. Hear about the Native American rituals related to water from the Shaman of a local Native American tribe.
