Native American Heritage

I have some native American heritage in my family from Kentucky and there's this thing that's been passed down every other generation. It's a mantra or chant or something like that (I don't know what to call it) that someone says to stop someone else from bleeding if they're bleeding a lot. I know that the rule is that it can only be passed down every other generation and the gender has to switch. My great-grandfather taught it to my mother, who has it written down somewhere. I don't know it myself, but if I have a boy, then she's supposed to teach it to him, who will then teach it to his own granddaughter and so on. I just think it's a really interesting tradition.

Really cool. Do you know what happens if someone passes away and can't pass it on?

No, but my great-grandfather had eight kids. There's still plenty of people to pass it on!

So why don't you ask you mother or other older people in your family? I do think that indians (you can not say this in the US...?) are more connected. Ask about it.
