What are some of the Sioux Indians' religious practices?
The Sioux Nation (comprised of seven council fires and sub-tribes) had many spiritual practices. The foundational rituals or ceremonies are the seven rites:
The Keeping of the Soul (Nagi Gluhapi Na Nagi Gluxkapi)
The Rite of Purification or Sweat Lodge (Inipi)
Crying for a Vision or Vision Quest (Hanblecheyapi)
The Sun Dance (Wiwanyag Wachipi)
The Making of Relatives (Hunkapi)
Preparing for Womanhood or Puberty Rite (Ishna Ta Awi Cha Lowan)
Throwing of the Ball (Tapa Wanka Yap)
The Healing (Yuwipi)-- relatively new.
There are literally hundreds of other minor spiritual practices that the Sioux engage in...too many to mention here but you can find them in many fine books.

The East coast Sioux tribes had two main Nations known as the Saponi and the Catawba. The name Sioux refers to all tribes which spoke of the Siouan language (the variations of this language varies from tribe to tribe). One of the most…
A: A government would, andshould, restrict religious practices when they harm others or break laws in place to protect moral codes that society regards as desirable. A cult would not be permitted to perform human sacrifices on religious grounds. Polygamy is also prohibited in most countries. Where there is insufficient separation between religion and state, some governments may restrict the practices of minority religions. For example, church bells have been disallowed in some Middle Eastern…

Ancient Egypt and today Egypt both have many different religious practices. One of the ancient Egyptian religious practices is that before medicine they would not cure themselves from sickness because they thought the gods would cure the illness. Egyptians also worshipped their deities (gods) very heavily. The Egyptians main god was the sun god probably because the climate was probably hot and very tiring.

Part of the great plains was in Wyomings South pass, Shoshone territory, thats were they met a had fight with other plains indians such as the Crow tribe.
The "hostiles" (as they were called by the US Army) consisted of many different tribes of the Lakota Sioux, plus some Santee or Dakota Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho. Custer had with him an Arikara Scout, plus a number of Crow scouts and even at least one Sioux scout (the Crows and Sioux were detached to drive away the enemy horses at the beginning of the battle and took no part in the fight). The Arikara…
The Sioux Indians used turtles, stakes, buffalo, and trees. Trees were scarce in some areas so wood was always reused. Buffalo horns were used for cups and spoons. The skin are used for clothing, shelter, shields, and drums. The bones were used for tools, arrowheads, and pipes. The hooves were melted into glue. The buffalo droppings (chips) were used as fuel for fires. ~AVB
