I recently met some Native American Indians.I can respect their beliefs and still keep my own. I am not prejudiced.But they kept trying to get me and my family to participate in their ceremonies.We didn't.but they were really pushy about it.Like wear their beads, and dance with them.I don't mean to offend anyone.But is this normal?And what is deism?I thought it would be offensive for us to pretend we were one of them when we are not.
Deism is the belief in gods. Atheism, no belief in gods, polytheism belief in many gods, monotheism, belief in one God.

Deism is a belief in a supreme being based on nature. Meaning believing in God in a rational sense. You may HAVE offended them by not participating. It wouldn't have meant you are all the sudden a different religion and belief. YES it is normal for Native Americans to have a ceremony wearing beads and dancing.

They probably were just happy to be able to share their joy with you. Just like if I was at a church service where there was quire singing and every one was clapping, etc. I'd clap along to honor them, but it doesn't mean I am worshiping their God. I would have LOVED to have been in your position and embraced it to the fullest. It is an honor to be asked to be a part of something special, in any religion!!
