Oklevueha Native American Church Members
Code of Conduct
I commit to making effort to spend time each day in meditation and prayer, drawing closer to the Great Spirit and all of creation, the two-leggeds and the four-leggeds.
I commit to use the medicines and ceremonies to empower my body, mind and spirit and to serve myself and others and create peace and harmony in my relationships.
I commit that I will keep the ceremonies and what is shared there by others sacred, not sharing it outside the circle.
I commit that I will understand the responsibility to sustain and support those who bless me. I remember that medicine people and leaders have lives and families that need their time and they need to provide for them. I will be respectful and generous as they assist me.
I will read the Code of Ethics often and follow the concepts.
I will never share sacraments or sell medicines to those who are not members of ONAC. I understand that doing so removes my legal protection and exposes me to prosecution.
I will not disrespect the medicines and sacraments by using them for recreational purposes.
I will never manipulate others emotionally, spiritually or physically that are in the open state during ceremonies or while using medicines.
