Seems like I read somewhere that funeral pyres are allowed on reservations as long as proper paperwork is filed with the State.

I want to go out like Belinda surely!

"Belinda's relatives described her as a giving and stubborn person who loved motorcycles, the outdoors, and smoking pot. Amid the scent of juniper and burning wood was a smell of marijuana from a bag that someone dropped into the pyre."

Do you want to have a Funeral Pyre in Oklahoma, Versatile? As for myself, I could care less what happens to me when I'm no longer alive. I would hate for my family to have to pay the thousands of $$$ that funerals cost. I wonder how much cremations cost. So many people are going that route.

They've actually started "Green Funerals" here in Ohio finally. Your coffin is bio-degradable material, you can be buried in a shrowd and placed in mother earth, or cremation and no concrete vaults, metal coffins or embalming is allowed. One plot two people, one can be buried but the other must be cremated, or both cremated. A tree of your choice from this region is planted over you and they don't mow the grounds (except for the funeral only), a marker is placed where you are so love ones may find your plot. I like the idea, nateral the way it should be.

Going out in a big bonfire etc seems so natural to me.Actually would rather just be laid out along a hedgerow and let the critters do their job seems better and more natural. Although a big fire made of hedge(osage orange) would be just fine.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust . I see no need in a big steel box or and a cript, it's a waste of money and fire purifies everything. Besides, the body it only a temperary carrying case for a soul.

That's what my family and I are doing.

Pieces are pieces and parts are parts. I don't want anyone cutting me up into pieces and parts. I have read that there is actually a profit stream on donated human body parts. Might sound selfish to you but i have had many major surgeries to never even get close to having a normal body and i don't want to give up anything at all.
