Martin 'Two Turtles'
Chanupa Ceremony

Martin Two Turtles is an initiated lore man and traditional Native Sundancer, as well as a keeper of the Inipi/Sweat Lodge and sacred fire on the Gold Coast.  He will be calling to the 4 directions over this weekend and sharing his prayer of a CHANUPA CEREMONY.

Čhaŋnúŋpa (in Standard Lakota Orthography) is the Sioux language name for the sacred, ceremonial pipe and the ceremony in which it is used.

The pipe is very sacred to First Nations people. In the past, it was used to open negotiations between different nations as a way for good talk to take place.

A strong foundation of what the Home Fire Gathering is all about.
