The Red Road

January 8, 2014 @ Wikipedia

The Red Road is a concept of the right path of life, as inspired by some of the beliefs found in a variety of Native American spiritual teachings.

In some modern, Pan-Indian or New Age healing systems the idea of the Red Road plays part of the recovery process from illness, spiritual sickness, and addictions: Through “the Sweat lodge, the Red Road, and the Recovery Medicine Wheel.” The phrase “The Red Road” has been picked up by many non-Native adherents of New Age and Hippy lifestyles, based on their own ideas of what they think Native American spirituality is like, leading to charges of cultural appropriation and misrepresentation.
