What about our traditional beliefs? – Mark Custalow (Mattaponi)

Christian Native American answers: Mark Custalow, a follower of Jesus from the Mattaponi tribe in Virginia, answers the question, “What about our traditional ways and beliefs?”

“You know, it’s a scary thing to leave and abandon what has been familiar and taught to you since you can remember anything in life.

You know, maybe that you grew up in a native community, in a native family that have practiced traditional ways all your life, and all of a sudden you’ve been confronted with a different truth than you’ve ever known. You’ve got exposure, somebody that’s talking to you, or some piece of media that’s come across your way that’s saying that the creator God that you’ve known and acknowledged has a name, and his name is Jesus….”

Is it true?
