The Drinking Gourd

Gourds also known as squash can be dried, hollowed and shaped into a drinking spoon. A common indigenous practice in the 1700’s.

The constellation known today as The Big Dipper, was known back then as The Drinking Gourd.

The Drinking Gourd is used to locate the North Star. If you simply walk towards The North Star you will find your way North.

North in this context represents:

safety   

peace   

happiness  

future   

hope   

stability   

prosperity   

freedom

To locate the North Star, one would follow the direction of last two stars at the end of the Drinking Gourd Constellation. Those stars are called the pointer stars, and point directly to The North Star.

The North Star is the brightest star in The Little Dipper constellation.

The Little Dipper and The Big Dipper sit side by side, and can be seen in the Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer skies.

Lost?  LOOK UP.

May the stars be your guide
