The traditions of our people are handed down from father to son.
The Chief is considered to be the most learned, and the leader of the tribe.
The Doctor, however, is thought to have more inspiration.
He is supposed to be in communion with spirits... He cures the sick by the laying of hands, and payers and incantations and heavenly songs.
He infuses new life into the patient, and performs most wonderful feats of skill in his practice... He clothes himself in the skins of young innocent animals, such as the fawn, and decorates himself with the plumage of harmless birds, such as the dove and hummingbird...
   --Sarah Winnemucca, Paiute - (1844-1891)

Theosophy: "Intuitional knowledge or wisdom resulting from progress in Self-awareness and/or experience of one's own Transcendental ('Divine') Nature."

Theosophist: "An individual who is at least willing to consider potential knowledge and/or wisdom purporting to have been derived in this special epistemological way."
