The sweat lodge symbolizes Mother Earth's womb. The sweat lodge re-enacts what spiritually takes place in your mother's womb. We are born into the sweat lodge–into our Mother Earth's womb. We are recreating Creation when we conduct ceremony in the sweat lodge. This presentation will explain how the four directions and the four elements of water, earth, air, and fire constitute life and will touch on the responsibilities of each color of man–the yellow race, the black race, the white race, and the red race–as they relate to the sweat lodge teachings.
