The "zee tsa lit ni'", "friendship prayer" song is an offering of prayer and life-long protection from evil.


This ceremony can be performed in the presence of a sacred candle or fire to ensure the spirits will hear your prayers. When performing this ceremony a man or woman can perform the rites. If not done by a close blood relative, then hire a medicine man or medicine woman. The rite takes about ten minutes each night, repeated for four nights under a clear night sky. Give a gift of turquoise, made with downy eagle feathers.
