The Late Manny Twofeathers, Aztec and Yaqui, was born in Arizona. He was largely influenced by the southwest legends and native spirituality born of his ancestry. He has authored 2 hugely successful books: "My Road to the Sundance" (published by Hyperion and 2002 edition by Wo-Pila Publishing) and "Stone People Medicine" (published by Wo-Pila Publishing and New World Library) - both lean toward native spirituality, and have been published in foreign languages. Twofeathers is a spiritual elder and counselor. He travels extensively performing spiritual ceremonies, giving lectures and workshops throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.
A native of South Central Arizona of Aztec descent, and being reared in the old ways, Manny has many gifts - both spiritual and creative. As a Sundancer and counselor, his reputation and popularity is growing to such a degree that demands are being made for him to appear all over the world giving lectures and workshops.
As an author Manny has written several books. His newest release, and first fiction story, "Kokopelli's Dream…the Emergence of a Legend" is being published in May, 2004. His own story, "My Road To The Sundance", enjoyed publishing success. In January 1995, he self published this book, and 5 months later, Disney's Hyperion Publishing purchased the rights to re-release it in hardcover for July, 1996.
The Sundance book has been translated into German and Italian editions, and a third REVISED edition is now available. In 1997, he released another self-published book, called "Stone People Medicine," it has sold 11,000 copies. It has been released in Italian, and is now re-released by New World Library, as a book boxed set with Stone Cards included. The common thread with all of Manny's written material, is the Native American spiritual theme.
