I smudge, when I feel like my home, or spirit has been soiled by anger, strife, or negative energy. I smudge with sage, and sweetgrass. We were taught that it was good to burn sweetgrass after the sage, had driven out the bad influences. Sweetgrass brings in the good spirits and the good influences. I like to sing the Cherokee morning prayer, but you could say whatever prayer you are comfortable with while you work.

Her husband was killed in a raid on the Creeks during the 1755 battle of Taliwa, where she fought by her husband's side, chewing the lead bullets for his rifle to make them more deadly.
