The Canupa, or Sacred Pipe, is considered by many to be the single most sacred item used in ceremony. It is used in many good ways and its presence at a ceremony helps keep the ceremony focused.
The Pipe Ceremony is similar to a “talking circle,” where people are supported in speaking from their hearts. The pipe keeper helps hold the sanctity of the space while the participants speak about their lives and community concerns.
Once all participants have spoken, the Sacred Pipe is passed around so that everyone can “put their prayers into the pipe.” Once the pipe is “loaded” with these prayers, it is smoked to release the prayers and set them in motion. A tobaccoless smoking mixture, kinnickkinnick, may be used in this ceremony.
