Blue Magnetic Hand/ Blue Overtone Storm - Resonant Monkey Moon of Attunement, Day 6
Possibles Bag - Cheyenne
The Cheyenne tribe consisted of Native Americans that began as a woodland people in Minnesota before events of the late 1600s forced them into nomadic life on the Great Plains.
In Cheyenne society, the extended family was the most important unit, with children, parents, and grandparents living close to each other and sharing economic resources. Work assignments were based upon age and sex. Young boys and old men often took care of the horses, while middle-aged men conducted raids, hunted bison, and participated in ceremonial activities. Middle-aged and young women erected and dismantled homes, gathered food and fuel, and butchered meat, while older women watched the youngest members of the village.
The Cheyenne tribe included the Council of Forty-Four, made up of 40 headsmen, with four representatives representing ten bands. Each council member was equal in power and served for ten years. Considered the wisest men in the tribe, four councilmen known as the old man chiefs often served as religious leaders. The Council made decisions for the entire tribe, including those related to external and internal conflicts, ceremonial schedules, and tribal moves.
The Cheyenne participated in very complex trading networks, often serving as the middleman between the Europeans and other Indian tribes. Due to their trading connections, the Cheyenne usually had their villages on or near important rivers in order to open their route options.
I unify in order to know
I seal the store of accomplishment
With the magnetic tone of purpose
I am guided by my own power doubled.
Submission and humility open the door to the super mental descent, dissolving and transforming the present human into the superhuman.*
