Coming of Age Ceremony

Hello,

I am looking for some help/advice regarding something I want to do for my sister. She is turning 18 next week and I have always felt a strong spiritual connection with her as soon as she was born. We both have native American Indian connections and I have the urge to perform a coming of age type ceremony or ritual that will prepare her spiritiually. I thought it would be a unique way to celebrate her 18th in todays day and age, and thought it may be special for her to experience this as I know she has ancestors of this kind very close to her now.

So what I am asking for is any tips or steps that I can perform a ritual or ceremony for her, nothing too extravagant but something sweet and true that is traditional of this culture and will do what is necessairy in terms of her progression spiritually and coming of age. Like a series of things/steps I could perform in nature with her.

Look forward to hearing from you

Warm wishes,

Rose.

You can bless her with cedar or sage, outdoors. Let her know she has a valid place in this world.

Have a look at the 7 Sacred ceremonies as I'm sure there was one to cover a girl becoming a Woman in Lakota.... Have a lok it might fit for you..

Re: Coming of Age Ceremony

Thank you Star Wolf Medicine Woman, I had a look last night and it is what I am looking for. However, it said to perform this ritual without proper guidance is seen as an insult, so I wouldn't want to do that lol so I will incorporate key features I feel are important into a little ceremony for her. Thanks again

Re: Coming of Age Ceremony

I do not think you will cause offence if you just take inspiration or ideas from it.. It is a celebration after all.
