Phillip Scott, also known as Tsunka Wakan Sapa, has walked the Native path for over twenty-five years. Of Western Band Tsalagi ancestry, he learned from Medicine/Holy people, tribal Spiritual leaders, shamans and elders from various traditions. A ceremonial Chief in the Lakota tradition, he is devoted to sharing indigenous wisdom and healing practices with the contemporary world. For many years, he has been serving as a spiritual counselor and educator in universities, hospitals, hospices, schools and corporations throughout the United States. Phillip has appeared nationally and internationally on the Radio, television and in newspapers, and has been featured in journals and books. He is the founder and director of Ancestral Voice - Center for Indigenous Lifeways in Novato, California.

Though his principal focus and service is in ceremonial and Native Medicine, Phillip has been a practitioner and teacher of Tai Chi Chuan for over two decades. In his youth he was introduced to Tae Kwon Do. While studying Asian philosophy (Daoism, Zen, and Tibetan Buddhism) for one of his undergraduate degrees, he was encouraged to learn Tai Chi. A Yang long form from Taiwan was offered at the University, which he practiced faithfully for four years. Upon graduation, while refining his dance skills, he began sharing the form then journeyed abroad to pursue a career as a professional ballet and modern dancer.

When he was residing in Europe, he supplemented his martial arts training and knowledge with a softer Yang long form (from mainland China), a four element form and various Qigong practices. In addition, he pursued Iaido (Japanese sword) and received certification in Vietnamese acupuncture from the Tran family lineage.
