Russell Means, AIM Co-founder Speaks on Matriarchy
Russell Means has lived a life like few others in this century - revered for his selfless accomplishments and remarkable bravery. He was born into a society and guided by way of life that gently denies the self in order to promote the survival and betterment of family and community. His culture is driven by tradition, which at once links the past to the present.
The L.A. Times has called him the most famous American Indian since Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse. His indomitable sense of pride and leadership has become embedded in our national character. Today, his path has brought him to Hollywood, thus enabling him to use different means to communicate his vital truths. Through the power of media, his vision is to create peaceful and positive images celebrating the magic and mystery of his American Indian heritage. In contemplating the fundamental issues about the world in which we live, he is committed to educating all people about our most crucial battle - the preservation of the earth.
Thirty years ago, reflecting the consciousness of the sixties, he captured national attention when he led the 71-day armed takeover on the sacred grounds of Wounded Knee, a tiny hamlet in the heart of South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation. Means joined "The Longest Walk" in 1978 to protest a new tide of anti-Indian legislation including the forced sterilization of Indian women. Following the walk, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution saying that national policy was to protect the rights of Indians, to believe, express and exercise their traditional religions, including but not limited to access to sites, use and possession of sacred objects, and the freedom to worship through ceremonials and traditional rites.
At the end of his celebrated life, with the same passionate determination, he directed his energy towards the entertainment industry.

"My belief is that our hearts are woven through the truth of all of our ancestors and each of us can only ever express the inherent wisdom of the dream while we remain connected through the creator to hear all of our ancestors."
"There is a large untold history of the hiding of the Irish Kings to avoid religious and feudal persecution that DNA research is helping uncover."

Name : Akshai Sthalekar
Designation: Co- Founder
Experience: 7 years.
I started meditating regularly at a very young age. This has helped me gain spiritually which in turn helps me during investigations and communicating with the spirit. Meditation also developed my psychic abilities and thus I can connect to various places and heal people. I have healed people in The USA, UK, Germany, Oman, Singapore and Australia. I learnt a lot from my guides, Late Erik Berglund (International Harpist and a spiritual Healer) and Mr. Raj Mali(Shamanic Master). I also perform exorcisms using meditative techniques and some special astral weapons.
Name: Sarbajeet Mohanty (Cohen)
Experience: 3 years.
He could sense spirits around and tried to communicate with them as a young boy. He is our lead investigator and came into this field out of determination to overcome fears. As he used to sense spirits he was afraid and then decided to overcome them and use his abilities as his strength. Guided by many paranormal investigators to investigate and by Akshai Sthalekar to follow the path of spirituality, he has developed beautifully.

The Booker Series - Monty Joynes
Naked Into The Night - Upon examining his life, Winn Conover, family man, successful businessman, pillar of his community, discovers that“ something was missing. It was not material…it was something inside.” Investigating further, he learns that he is much more than the maddening clutter of his life. Finding that sacred self within but unable to maintain its presence in the moral bankruptcy of the television age, he walks out of his big suburban home one night naked, literally stripped of his old identity. Thus begins a spiritual odyssey that takes him across the country to the Southwest.
Lost In Las Vegas - White Wing, the future spiritual leader of a diminishing Pueblo tribe, is one of the best ritual dancers. He dances with such dignity and skill that he transcends this world like a sacred eagle, filled with grace and light. Lured by the excesses of modern society he uses his power of dancing for monetary gain rather than to fulfill the spiritual needs of his tribe. Winn Conover, who first appeared in the novel Naked Into the Night, and now called “Anglo” by his adopted tribe, is called upon by the tribe’s elders to rescue White Wing from Las Vegas. Fulfilling ancient Native prophecy that white people will join forces with and help save Native spirituality, Anglo enters the hedonistic world to retrieve and guide, a lost and sacred son. Ultimately Lost In Las Vegas is a shared vision quest that reveals the path home, not only for White Wing and Anglo, but for all of us.
