Native American Deities

To my knowledge most Native American tribes and nations believe in seven to eight deities. Those being

Great Spirit or Creator: The deity that created all things

Mother Earth

Father Sky

The Four Winds and/or Directions – East, South West and North

ans for some Sister Moon.

To end their prayers and/or agree and/or wish a blessing on another person with something positive that has been said the say the word: A’ Ho (pronounced: A as in Ah and Ho as written)

Each tribe or nation has their own word for a greeting. Part of my ancestors are Choctaw and their word for hello is Halito.

If you know any of the greetings for other nations or tribes please share them with us. Thank you
