In this article we will talk about some of the major Native American beliefs and other resources you can use to learn more.

One of the major beliefs of many Native Americans and other World religions is the idea that after our death we go to a Heaven. Whether a person goes to Heaven or not directly depends on the life that the person has lived. There are also other beliefs in some Native American groups that you will be re-incarnated as an animal or something else. In the Native American culture they hold animals to be very sacred.
The next interesting belief or practice among Native Americans is that they don’t have a designated Church that they attend every Sunday or Saturday. A lot of the spiritual growth comes from hunting, ceremonies, and other forms of worship. This is very different than most major Christian religions that have a weekly meeting or followers to attend. However, in my opinion this idea sounds great in that you find God in nature and the little things of life.
