Check out this vid or if you are short of time search Youtube for shorter clips on topic. Plus I’ve added more vids below. Indigenous people have done this since forever, way ahead of the so called ‘civilized’ and as always given little to no credit. It’s mentioned in the doco that the man speaking, as a boy, recalled a Cheyenne woman telling him to take his shoes off as they ‘make you sick’.
