Ikce Wicasa Tiospaye a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization
This inipi functions in a traditional way, which means that if there is need on a day or at a time other than what is scheduled, send a note to the email below and it will happen. This is not limited to tiospaye members; our willingness to pray for the health and well-being of others is available to anyone who asks in a respectful way.
Fire Lit/Go In Ceremony begins when the fire is lit. Typically, we are able to go into the inipi about two hours after.
Day/Date These are SCHEDULED inipi. There will be others, which will be posted as they become known. We time regular inipi to the closest weekend day to new and full moon.
Month
The inipi and area up to the deer skull, including wood storage and the tables under the awning, are our responsibility and should be kept impeccably clean and well organized as it is sacred ground. We are guests in JD and Tea’s home, so please be mindful of stowing your stuff and, of course, it’s our obligation to keep the areas we use super-clean. When in the lodge area, from the fire pit back, please maintain it as peaceful and prayerful. No smoking, no food, water okay.
NOTE: for the summer months we’ll cut back on the number of stones for lodge. Typically, this is about 16 instead of 28.
