It was created by a woman who lived with a (Cree?) tribe out west, and the symbols are based on that tribe's clans and beliefs (I like that it didn't take a "one-size-fits-all-Indians" approach). As you read them, you will find yourself interpreting to your own tribe's teachings and recognizing the symbology in that context. Even so, take a look at the book and just see if there's a little more information to be gleaned from each card.
The cards are remarkably easy to read, with each one bearing three key words on the front. You almost don't need the book, but you might want to refer to it anyway until you get to know them better. The medicine wheel chart that comes with the deck is pretty cheesy and you probably won't use it. I usually do a simple three card spread, but there are some very intriguing suggestions in the book. I particularly liked the calumet/pipe layout and got some good readings from it right off the bat.
The first time I read for my mother and my aunt, both elders, I was amazed to learn my great-grandfather was known to read an ordinary deck of playing cards. He helped a lot of people in his village and it made me so proud to hear that. I spread a nice cloth on the table, smudged the cards and ourselves, and read for them. They loved it! If you are looking for a deck that respects the Red Road and won't offend your ancestors, this is probably the one for you.
When they arrived the other day, not only were they beautifully designed as described, they are absolutely gorgeous. Each card is well thought out and portrays such emotion and has such beautiful messages.
The first time I sat down with them I tried a layout shown in the small guide book called "The Blossoming Flower" and was simply amazed. It was not only uplifting but it gave gentle direction in the right way.
In my opinion they would be great for everyone from experienced readers to novice beginners. They are easy to follow, the book is well written, and the cards seem extremely well made. And that's not even including the beautiful little poster that is a map of the Native medicine wheel.
Being Native American myself I connected easily with these cards, but I think anyone no matter your family linage would simply adore the beauty of these cards.
I truly think I have found a new favorite deck and I can promise I will be using them often. <3
Over a year later and I am still in awe of these cards! In my experience these are easy for anyone to connect with, they always point out whats going on around you clearly, and always seem to give a good direction to go in.
I have read myself countless times, and have done probably 30+ readings on others over the last year with these. There are actually several that ask me specifically to use these cards each time.
Even after all that they look like new.
They are truly one of my favorite decks out of the 20+ I have. Soon I'll be stocking up on them, for myself and as gifts for others.
Highly recommended, no matter if your beginner or a more advanced reader! <3
being of native heritage and brought up on the native traditional path by my Blackfeet grandmother i can honestly say i was very skeptical having seen the cards advertised here on amazon.
i have seen many such quote unquote native oracles and decks of so called native teaching but this deck is far from inaccurate or new age it is a very easy to understand and very pleasing medium to work with, having done tarot readings myself for many years and working with many many decks i can say i was impressed and delighted when i used this deck in a reading with a client for the first time i can say without reservation you will not be sorry with this purchase.
if you are truly looking for a nice and easy to understand deck this is it.
