    Dr. Clifford N. "The Strange Man" Alford: Cherokee

    in Religion

    Prerecorded April 3, 2004


    Dr. Clifford N. Alford began his training at five years old, when his Grandmother, a Texas Cherokee Medicine Woman recognized his interest in herbs and the ways of Mother Earth. She taught him an average of two to three months per year for the next fourteen years.


    Naturopathic and Shamanic Services, Inc. was founded by Dr. Sir Clifford N. Alford, Th.D, DD, MH, S/RMT, in May of 1995 in Tahlequah, OK for the purpose of protecting and reviving indigenous matriarchal shamanic traditions of the Cherokee Tribe and other similar traditions worldwide. This ministry had operated in Tahlequah and the surrounding areas, and in Texas, Louisiana, Michigan and New Mexico since 1993. His name was changed to Prajna Shiva Kalidasa by his Tibetan and Javanese teachers. 


    Prajna Shiva Kalidasa was born as Clifford Nelson Alford, and was apprenticed in Cherokee Medicine from the age of five by his maternal grandmother for fourteen years. His great grandmother assisted in that process for three years until her death. Prajna then apprenticed with others in the Asaga Medicine Society for another eleven years, which resulted in his being declared to be an Adawehas (Cherokee Spiritual Leader and Sexual Healer), and has pursued every opportunity to study and train with other Shamans in shamanic, sexual healing and empowerment methods from all over the world. His name in the Asaga was Stone Heart until his main teacher died when he received a new name of Henowetak which translates as "The Strange Man".

    1951 Sawtooth Wilderness Cherokee Massacre Survivor - Grandmother Earth Thunder

    in Religion

    Prerecorded...


    Website
    Newspaper Bio 


    I offer to teach peoples of what wild-nature taught me and my families. I now live in urban Idaho and the Wilderness of Northern California. We have manifested ways to integrate these Wild Wisdoms into doable daily - worthiness, wellness, purpose, relationship, abundance, prosperity, service and seeking.


    From birth to age 11 we lived so mountain-remote I did not know there were other humans living on our big planet.


    EarthThunder’s shared perhaps the most remarkable story I have ever heard. She was born around 1947 in Idaho, where she lives today. Both of her parents were indentured servants who were prohibited to have children. I know that this is hard to believe still possible in 1946. When EarthThunder was born her parents were murdered and she was given to her grandparents and extended family to raise. She spent the first 10 years of her life in the wild not knowing that there were other human beings in the world other than her family. She never saw a highway, a car, other people, airplanes, or electrical lines. Summers were spent in the mountains of Idaho at 8,500 feet above sea level and winters were spent in caves with food and animal hides to get them through the bitter cold, When EarthThunder was 10 her entire family was murdered in front of her, then thrown into a mass grave. Those unimaginably horrifying images still haunt her.

    The Texas Cherokees: Tsalagi Nvdagi ("Land Of The Sun") w/ Chief Pappy Hicks

    in Religion

    Prerecorded...


    According to Chief D.L. "Pappy" Hicks (facebook)


    The Texas Cherokees (website) were driven out by force In battles fought on the 15th and 16th of July 1839.


    No one left of his own accord. Many DID NOT flee Texas, but hid out in the woods until the army left. Many returned to their fields and started to live as "white" citizens for survival purposes.


    Many lost their Cherokee heritage; some of them hung on to them and have never wavered about being Cherokee. We wavered only when it came to living within the bounds of Texas.


    Remember, a red man couldn't vote or hold office until 1924. Even after that period, it was best to be "Black Dutch," or something that was dark, than it was to be and American Indian. People shouldn't depend entirely upon historians and their books to give them facts about the red man.


    It is also impossible to "discover" historical events with a couple of books. Especially since I have read so many written by people who only rely upon other "historian's" document "facts." Not all court decisions are given with justice; just legal.


    Those decisions by Texas and US Courts have not made the treaties with Spain, Mexico and Republic of Texas invalid.

    Cherokee Joseph "Fire Eagle" Clements, ONAC Minister of Peace​

    in Religion

    I am Joseph Fire Eagle Clements. I am enrolled in the Cherokee Nation of Sequoyah. I am Ordained Minister of Peace via ONAC of Indiana Apache and Cherokee nations. Let's get on to the present situation within the tribes of the Native Americans. It saddens me today to see the members of the Cherokee Nation at such odds with others who are not ''full blooded tsalagi'', and who are not members of the ''Oklahoma Cherokee'', are not ''members of the Cherokee Family. This saddens me indeed. When have we as the true occupants of this land, the Native American Red Man, descended from Adam the original. Everyone who studies Hebrew language knows that ''Adam'' is a Hebrew word meaning, ''Ruddy'' or Red Man!! Get it? The very first occupants of the turtle island were the red man. We were created in the image of the One True God, Yohewah. And he made our skin RED, the color of earth. We are the keepers of Mother Earth together, no one man can do this daunting task, it is too hard for one alone. we must all pick up our hoes and get rid of the weeds from among the wheat. The tares among us, this is what I would like to address. A man is not a Cherokee who is a Cherokee on his skin. A man who is a Cherokee is a Cherokee in his HEART. Let us return to the original path, and let us concentrate on the Original Task...to go in and possess the land, and occupy till I come. We must work together to bring back the traditional native American ways to the hearts of our people. The elders must be restored to their teaching the young men, and the mothers of our tribes to the teaching of the young women. If we do not turn back to the ''love thy neighbor as thyself'', and the ''put something back when you take something away.'' Do not cut a tree down in this life unless you are willing to plant another in its place.
