Popular culture usage[edit]

The Blessing Way is also referred to in the novel "Blasphemy" by Douglas Preston that is situated on a Navajo reservation in the Southwest United States. It is referred to in the novel as a Navajo ceremony performed by a medicine man that "restores balance and beauty in a person's life — after trouble with drugs or alcohol, time in jail". It also discusses two other native ceremonies, the Enemy Way and the Falling Star Way.

(The preceding paragraph was incompetently added to The Blessing Way on 18 February 2008 by 76.98.126.196, replete with spelling and punctuation errors. Instead of simply deleting it, I removed it to here, for-what-it's-worth. —QuicksilverT @ 09:24, 28 October 2008 (UTC))

Kinaaldá[edit]

The section on the Kinaaldá has long been part of this article, but possibly it should be split off on its own. -- 202.124.73.62 (talk) 14:16, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
