The Ancient Ones Horn...Tribute to those that have passed.
Here you will find,some pictures, and info on Members that are no longer with us, but not ever forgotten.
First let me tell you a little about The Horn. When one of our members, passes on, his or her name is placed on the horn, in tribute to them as Ancient Ones.
Each year we do a 4 winds ceremony, that is a tribute to them, mother earth, and the 4 winds, north, south, east, and, west. There names are read aloud, and folks can say a few words if they like. If someone speaks your name, you will never be forgotten, someone once said. How true that is!!!!!
I have been Keeper of The Horn for years now, and have seen to many names added. That is the Bad side. Here is the Good side. As keeper of the horn I take it to as many Vous, and events that I can, and when ever we do a shooting volly, we use powder form The Horn. So that those of us that have passed can still be a part of what we do. The horn hangs on my camp pole, so they can be a part of camp, and folks can stop by and say hi, or just remember the good times.
It is a good feeling knowing that Someday my name will be there too, and I will always be a part of The Ancient Ones.
Gomer...... Ancient One and Keeper of The Horn.
