A vision quest is a rite of passage in some Native American cultures. Among Native American cultures who have this type of rite, it usually consists of a series of ceremonies as sweat lodge and a complete fast for four days and nights, alone at a sacred site in nature. This rite has been done for many generations.
During this time, the person prays and cries out to the spirits for a vision, one that will help to find a purpose in life, a role in the community or society, and a best serve the People.
The time, Dreams and visions may involve natural symbolism – such as animals or forces of nature – that require interpretation by the Guide.
The person who fasts stays awake and concentrates on their quest until their mind becomes “comatose, its Weyekin is revealed itself.
Nowadays this is a rite celebrated around the world and attended by hundreds of people, men and women yearly go for a vision quest.
