Warn everybody in the area that GGH's teacher is Morgan "Eaglebear" Maez, the phony claiming to be Geronimo's greatgrandson, and one of the worst sexual exploiters of his followers.

The warning from the Ft Sill Apache Tribe:

And the phony ceremony he uses to sexually exploit his followers:

Don't know if GGH does the same, but it doesn't speak well of him if that's his main teacher.

"Troy Grey Ghost Hawk: Ceremonialist and Teacher
A Little About Me:
Grey Ghosthawk has been apprenticed to Morgan Eagle Bear, an Apache Shaman for 12 years. He has also studied with Ojibway, Seneca, Anishinabe, Muskogee, Choctaw and Lakota Elders from North America. Recently I was privileged to study with Toltec and Huichol Elders from Central America as well as the Ketchiwa people of South America. He studied with a Maori Tahunga named Joseph Winterhawk and has been appointed a Warrior in this as well as the Apache Tradition.
My Background:
Ghosthawk has participated in ceremony in South Dakota with Lakota Elders, in Peru with Ketchiwa Shaman and many other locations with many different Elders and Shaman. He has also been honored with working security and aiding in the Elders' Kitchen at Sun Dance along with other members of the Native American Church, The Brotherhood of Indigenous Spiritualism.
My Qualifications and Training:
As a Ceremonialist, he has been given rites to conduct the Native American Purification Lodge (Inipi), Vision Quest (Hanblecheya), Cherokee Moon Ceremony and other rites for releasing and healing. Ghosthawk carries his own personal Canupa Wakan and was honored with the ability to share his Pipe in ceremony while at the top of Machu Pichu."

And if I remember right there is no "Cherokee Moon Ceremony."


It's amazing how these guys go down their list of teachers like an academic pedigree. It's kinda like someon that gets a blackbelt then recites all the styles he has been trained in, as if it will add to his validity. It is the western academic approach used to be able to assert your authority as a PRO. It has always been my experience that if you go outside your tribe or your NAC chapter and you spend more than a few minutes having to explaon where you got your stuff or even that you feel the need to explain where and how you got your stuff, YOU'RE A FAKE!!!!!
Oh Day Haw!!!

If you believe in nothing, you'll fall for anything.

Why would anyone even need research to realize this guy is fake?  He claims to have been taught under a shaman, afterall. ;)

"So the six of us entered the park at dusk to meet with the fellow witches under the half-moon. GreenSong was a large eclectic group of pagans–all very friendly and positive people. It was announced that the ritual would be run by Grey Ghosthawk in a Native American format (Cherokee, specifically). This got me very excited."

"Grey Ghosthawk then called upon the Great Spirit, Wakan Tanka to carry the poisonous energy away as he threw the cornmeal into the fire."

"This time everyone was going to honor the Cherokee Indians with the “Cherokee Full Moon Ritual“. During the ritual, everyone joined hands to honor and share the practices of the Native American traditions. A man by the name of Grey Ghosthawk lead everyone in a Cherokee Full Moon Ritual to hear the tale of Selu, the Corn woman and her sons. During the carefully reincarnated process, everyone received blessing of cornmeal and tobacco, released all of their resentment, anger, hate and fear in return for the Great Spirit’s blessings."

Do any of these people stop to think that throwing "resentment, anger, hate and fear" at the spirits doesn't deserve a blessing in return?

"Sacred Shaman Sweat Lodge Ritual

"Have you experienced a spiritual Sweat Lodge ritual by an awesome authentic Native Indian Shaman? Here is one of those rare opportunities. Grey Ghosthawk apprenticed under Morgan Eagle Bear, an Apache Shaman, for 12 years. He has also studied with Ojibway, Seneca, Anishinabe, Muskogee, Choctaw and Lakota Elders from North America. More recently he was privileged to study with Toltec and Huichol Elders from Central America and the Ketchiwa people of South America. Additionally, he has studied with a Maori Tahunga named Joseph Winterhawk, was appointed a Warrior in this lineage and in the Apache Tradition. As a Ceremonialist, he has been given rites to conduct the Native American Purification Lodge (Inipi), Vision Quest (Hanblecheya), Cherokee Moon Ceremony and other rites for releasing and healing.
