|Smudging is the act of purifying one's body or space to cleanse the air and offer smoke and prayers in the manner of ancient Native American ceremonies. Medicinepeople and elders perform ceremonies to Mother Earth and Father Sky, to bless the land where they live, and to send prayer to the Creator, The Great Spirit. Traditional smudging fans are often the entire wing of a bird.|
