How do traditional values in native cultures impact who you are? “It is not the events of history or today, but how those events impact who you are spiritually, intellectually, and culturally that deﬁne their importance.” Ray Buckley
Where are you on the path as it stretches before you? Will it be straight, narrow or wide?
Native Moccasins Rock is more than a good time; even though it is a powerfully good time. Through the years, we have been committed to bringing leadership top in their ﬁelds to NMR. Whether you want to explore your native culture and tradition or as non-native you want to learn more and afﬁrm the answers to questions you may have about Native Americans – past, present and future; you have an opportunity based on fellowship and understanding through education.
Our Leadership is more than generous with their time. Native American traditions are not “new age” or something “made for tv psychics”. This year, our “Time for Spirit” on Saturday will present the traditional presence of the Cherokee in Tennessee. Each year we will be begin to bring forward education on the 5 “Civilized Tribes” of the Southeast.
There are pictures online if you would like to check out the camp.
