Hey y'all. Once again I am turning to FSU for knowledge of the obscure (to me). In a Native American "smudging" ceremony or ritual, is a small fire pit sometimes used? Everything I've googled shows that sage is burned in a small pot or something to cleanse the spirit, etc. If a small area on the ground, surrounded by an oval of rocks and about 12" large is found, could this be used in the smudging ritual? If it isn't, any thoughts on what it is for? It really looks like a small fire pit, but it is too small for a big campfire. You guys are the best!
