[quote=”[email protected]” post=3021]The native Americans calibrate with a give away. When a person in a tribe celebrates a birth or marriage, they envite others to join in the celibration. Gifts are given to the guests to give thanks to those who attend in shairing the Joyous event.They call it a giveaway. 🙂

The term Indian giving comes from the Indians giving the white man items that they needed to service in this harsh primitive enviornment. The White man was posessive and greedy. Stuff was important and they were happy for the gifts. However when the Indians found that thay were not being used or needed, and the Indians now needed them they took them back. :blush:[/quote]

I love the idea of Indian giving. But you are right, for us it is a completely foreign concept.
