    Most do where I live. Native culture is alive and well. Medicine men, ceremonies, peyote, sweat lodges. It's like Woodstock here.

    Do they stick to traditional names, or mostly use Christian ones?

    English names.

    Many have natives names in addition.

    They added to their culture the things they liked about Anglo culture.

    They like pageants, they host a miss Navajo pageant every year. But they are judged on things like building friction fire and killing and butchering a sheep.

    Jack Chick was very serious. He saw demons and witchcraft everywhere, including in the Catholic church. Even in D&D games.

    So do they actually believe and worship in tribal gods, or just like to do the whole Native Culture thing, as a cultural heritage/activity.

    A lot of indians on TV are portrayed in a very new agey, spiritual mumbo-jumbo sort of way, but all of the ones I have met personally have been pretty normal westerner type folks, Christian or not. But then I have never been near a reservation.

    I know about the D&D one. It would make less sense to me if I hadn't grown up around people like that. Bobby Boucher's mother is real.
    I'm not here anymore.

    They are very inclusive. When taught about Christ they added him into their traditional beliefs. Not abandoning anything.

    The Indians here are dead serious about their beliefs. I managed a large ag co-op for years and had to hire a medicine man many times. If you found a snake on your property, or an owl, the Navajo clientele refused to trade with us until the proper ceremony was held. The medicine men don't accept white man's money, so you had to figure out a suitable trade for their services.
