Aidan’s Take on Naraya

Aidan and I recently attended the New England Naraya ceremony.  Here is what he wrote about it.  [I retained some of the invented spelling.]


Clyde is the head of Naraya. He does all these dances at night. And all the kids get to sleep in the middle in there sleeping bags. And in all the dances people pray for a good life, and a good life for all the animals and kids.

Clyde is real nice. He gave me a name. It is seeder boy and in Shoshone it is Wapi To-Ya-Ba. I got that name because at all the dances I help my dad with the fire and I put seeder in the smudge bowls for a dance or a saromony. And that’s Naraya.
