William Martin explains that dances are not just dancing and ceremonies. They have meaning, usually rooted in appreciation and giving thanks. They are also important for cleansing negative energy. He describes his experience serving in the military and the presence of veterans and military service in Pow-Wows and ceremonies. They discuss his recipes for a “Health Tonic” which is a drink that improves health and is especially helpful for high blood pressure and arthritis, and a natural cough syrup. Watch as Martin and his apprentice,”Running Water,” explain and demonstrate the moon ceremony.
