I want to thank Bridgette personally for standing with me as we tried to revamp and reenergize The Free Cherokees, but as the founder, Sings-Alone said, “You have to decide where you put your life’s energy and is it worth it or draining the energy.” I had hoped to bring teachings and eventually gatherings to the people once we were all more on the same page, a level playing field if you will, so we would all be speaking the same language and have cultural understandings to draw from. I was told, that the Lakota teachings were not wanted but Cherokee teachings. I can only offer what I know and honor what I have been taught through my lineage and be true to those teachings. I do know Cherokee medicine teachings but chose to first offer where my heart and feet walk and that is the Good Red Road from my Lakota lineage.
As Bridgette has said, we gave it a go. It takes a lifelong learning and a community to make ceremony happen and to pull off a gathering, a few wanted it but the community concept which is the foundation of all we do, was elusive, so teachings were offered first in hopes of building that community but to no avail.
So, as the last Principal with the council, it is time to journey on to a new day in the direction Creator has us go. I was honored to walk with you for the time allotted and wish you all blessings and balance and pray you each finds your teachers upon the good Red Road.
For those few I was working with, I leave that door open to continue walking with you and learning together.
I wish you all gentle winds, strong bodies and minds and the love of family, friends, and community. May you walk softly on and in balance,
I have been asked by the amazing Principle Chief of the in the Past Free Cherokee and the recent attempt to move towards the Red Road Society. This message is to inform you of events that have taken place over the last year and where it all stands today and what the future is.
Early this year Principle Chief created an Inner Hoop Council to help her and support the work needed in order to realign the Free Cherokee in a good way. It became obvious to the council early on that the Free Cherokee was not in alignment with the traditional Native ways anymore, there was issues, concerns from other Native peoples about many of the Free Cherokee ways.
The Inner Council voted to change from the Free Cherokee to the Red Road Society to re-establish what was good and to let go what was not serving anymore.
I offered to build the website at that time, I bought the domain and hosting and began building. Over several meetings and several months we meet and discussed much of the stuff that made it onto the website. There were so many issues to deal with, try to overcome. We did it though and I got the website up.
This part is not to do harm to anyone, it is not meant to be disrespectful in any way, it is why we are here where we are at now and must be understood for the good of all.
The Principle was putting out teachings about the Lakota way and the seven directions. Only 3 people showed up to the last teaching online she gave for the Red Road Society.
We understand that people have their lives, but it became an impossible feat by those involved to get any interest in the Red Road Society and to be honest there were just not many confirmed members from the Free Cherokee anymore.
Two weeks ago, we had to call it quits. I was getting ready to launch a website educational plan to try to get more interest in what we were doing, our visions and goals. The motivation just was gone. The Principle officially has closed the Free Cherokee and Red Road Society.
I have recently removed all the past information of the Red Road Society website https://redroadsociety.com/ . I have asked permission to keep it and it was granted by the Principle to use for my own work. There is an email contact page if you wish to contact me on the rrs site. I am moving activities, blogs, events to the facebook page: Ministry of Consciousness & Snake Clan if you would like to keep informed about Red Road Society. The Ministry Of Consciousness is the Legal shelter of the Red Road Society, the Mother if you will. Postings about the Red Road Society will be on the Ministry of Consciousness & Snake Clan FB Page and
I will be offering so much on the Red Road website in the near future. I have a trading post for all Native, Indigenous, Original goods people can email with goods, products, and medicines. I would be honored to help.
There will be a women’s group that will I hope to start next month to share, teach ceremony and medicines with each other. Medicine and Shamanic women from all over the world. This should be announced in the future. The gathering is free, but I would be great’ful for a few donations to be given whenever possible, there are many costs involved with zoom meetings, websites and sometimes traveling expenses and gas to make all this happen. Donations can be made on the front page of the http://ministryofconsciousnessnevada.org/ there is a donation area.
I am in the process of creating the International Association of Original Medicine which will house Native, Traditional and Original Medicine people from all over the world and their bloodline work. In the Future, we hope to have International Conferences and Workshops in person and online for learning, understanding such ancient medicine. All of this will also go with the twelve Conscious Medicine Center worldwide we are also working on. These centers will be international and the Original Medicine Practitioners will be the “Doctors” in these centers. We hope to have long term and short term stays, farms on site where food is grown in original ways and is made for the benefit of all during their stays.
I have been working on much of this now since 2003.
I will be using the Red Road Society website to build, inform and educate people, as well as a place where I can put the information as it comes together. It will be up to you if interested to make sure you are checking the rrs website so you know what is going on and when.
My business partner in the IAOOM or International Association of Original Medicine is an amazing man who I met several years ago. We are doing a discussion and talk together that I will record to put up on rrs website, this meeting kicks off officially the start of getting much of this workout. The foundation I guess. He name is Muwonge Hassan and he is Traditional Medicine Man from Uganda like I said amazing and I am so lucky to have these amazing people around me, working with me and helping me to bring medicine back to the world in the way it was made, created and designed. Look for our recorded dialog on the rrs site towards the end of October. Until then enjoy the first in-person conversation I had with him after a year of emails. This was an interview I did with him when I had my online TV show/s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEtLz88-Oz4
In closing and out of honor and respect “we” felt we should let you know where things stand now and where they are headed for the future.

Lately, I have noticed that the creator puts everything I need out on the canvas (painting) for the day. Thought the canvas is blank, Creator gives me the brushes, paints, easel, chair, water, lunch and sets it all up with a beautiful view for me to just paint what I see, what I feel into being. So simple, but most days I do not even notice I am so caught up with what I think I need. If I needed groceries I could just paint them into existence. Like the ancient people painting the buffalos on cave walls with arrows through them, conjuring the food their people needed already dead and all they need to do is walk out of the cave and find where it lays, honor the buffalo and pack it home to the people, that easy, effortless. Each day I pray to the Creator to assist me to understand this, to guide and aid my hands to paint that which I need, that which others need, that which my Mother Earth needs and all beings upon her. I know Creator does not care if the image on the painting looks like the image in my head, Creator knows what I am getting at, it is about meeting Creator halfway, working with Creator, to create as a co-creator for the good of all, for all my relations. As co-creator I am responsible for all life here on earth that does not have the hands to paint, it is up to me to communicate with the tree beings to understand their needs and to get an image in my head to paint onto the canvas for their good. Co-creating with Creator the holographic images into the mind field and painted onto physical, emotional canvas effortlessly bringing into this reality what the image bares.
