Sorry, I can't help them there. The only thing I have ever done that could even be remotely considered Native American is use my electric can opener for a can of corn.
DC is a fun place to be. Lots of laughs. Lots of great recipes. Lots of sharing.
Native Americans are "Strong-Hearted". By that I mean they think a little differently than other ethnics. The land, the air, the living things around them like the animals, trees, grass, birds, and the air are all a wonder. Things other people don't see or take for granted is all taken in by the Native American as well as feeling emotions from the deepest part of the heart. If that makes any sense.....once you have a Native American for a friend it will be forever. We are a kind people but reserved about our deep friendships. I can count my "Heart" friends on one hand and they know who they are even if I don't see them very often.
