This presentation examines the social and political structures of the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska, and how both structures complemented the other. Recognition of dualities formed the basis for social structures, as well as to provide the basis for healthy populations. Use of power sharing, governing by consensus, and inclusion of spiritual ritual to “open” political proceedings are presented in-depth.
