Amazing. Again, the lack of research surfaces with Jessie Powell. This is from Topix and it looks like Jessie was, again, wrong on a post. Don't know who wrote it but congrads. Seems that when "The Queen of Cut and Paste" is left to her own devices problems happen.
JP writes ( Right-Spelling mine)"Wampanoags"
"It was publicized after the fact, that the Mashpee "Wamponoags" ( Mis-Spelling hers) held a Sacred Ceremony on land that appears not to belong to them on Precinct St.,
Although the purpose of the Sacred Ceremony is unclear, as it is unclear that permission was obtained to trespass or to ignite an outdoor fire in what is generally a very dry month,
It really is shameful.
I attended Native American ceremonies and "earth blessing" rituals of several different tribes and they are serious and beautiful. What I saw from the pictures is mockery of what should be considered their religion. It would be like taking whiskey to a Catholic baptism or me wearing a pentacle to a Catholic Church. It is unheard of to take marshmallows to something like this. Naive and stupid."
You see JP, People knew there would be one knuckle head out there that would try and say this or that about a permit.
So pulling a "cooking permit" for the event. Well.. You needed to have something to cook to make it Legal.Marshmallows was agreed upon.
Now personally, I felt It was symbolic of the marshmallow brain that would write a negative blog about permits and such for this event.. Being first you win the prize. lol
You win. a story from me. My highest Honor.lol
Over 230 positive people attended this event. I must say it was beautiful like the indian events you describe. To bad no media, Following tradition of this being a sacred event. I was Honored to be invited, What a feeling it was to be part of History in the making.
Sorry you missed out.
