Ikce Wicasa Tiospaye
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 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 table under the awning, is 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.
