Native American Full Moon Names And Their Meaning

I find the native American full moon names fascinating, yet they are also quite common sense. I often try and tie in the timing of our events and ceremonies with the Full Moons, although this is not required, I always find it a positive thing to do.

In many different cultures and belief systems the moon holds great power and authority, and, whether you hold with these beliefs or not, no-one could deny there is something wonderful about coming out of the Sweat Lodge under the light of the full moon. It is always something participants comment on, and we all always enjoy sitting eating supper beside the fire, by the light of the moon.

For the ancient people, before the introduction of the Julian, or Gregorian calendar, the cycles of the moon were used to define different parts of the year.  Within the Native American tribes, not all tribes used the same names, and also not every full moon was recognised as bringing forth a new part of the year within each tribe.

However, the old farmers almanac gives this information on the Full Moon Names taken from the names the Algonquin tribes of New England and Lake Superior used, and consequentially filtered into use by the Colonial Americans too.
