A new section about Sun Bear has been added to this site:

http://www.indianermedizinmann.com/sunbear.html

Quote
From Sunbear's view his medicine is only complete when he can share it after is life on earth. This is only possible when someone does his ceremonies. So he can live through Firewalker and, through Firewalker, can teach other persons.

Sunbear and Firewalker used a sacred medicine to combine their energy and knowledge to be one.

During sweatlodge ceremonies, Firewalker and Sunbear can talk to each other.
Firewalker is the only person on earth who knows the sacred medicine of Sunbear.

Wow. This is a whole new, appalling level of "the only good Indian is a..."

I mean, we've seen lots of frauds pop out of the woodwork with outlandish claims right after someone dies, but this takes exploitation of the dead into a realm of offensiveness that it is physically nauseating. He's actually claiming Indians are more effective spiritually after they die, so white people will now speak for them. Extra points for the white person being a deluded white stranger the dead guy probably never met.

I would never defend LaDuke/Sunbear, and it could be argued these debacles are LaDuke's own fault for spawning frauds like this, but I do have to cringe over what his family must feel about white strangers from Europe basically claiming to be their dead relative. Someone who knows them personally might want to say something to his family.

And as for his ridiculous, and equally unsubstantiated, bullshit "Irish druid" claims.... Ha! Let's just say my people have never heard of this German loon, either. I doubt the man knows any more Gaeilge than he does Cherokee, and he's shown he knows zero about what our ancestors believed and practiced.

Even if we were to believe for a second that the fraud is Cherokee, or even American, WTF gives him the right to Plains culture ceremonies?

I know I'm repeating myself here, but this guy astounds me with his level of craziness and persistence.



Is this one of the things the Dead Indian Who Lives in His Head told him to do?

Looks like a rug that people put in a child's room.  Strange color for a bear. Never seen one bluish grey.

That is one odd picture. Maybe the color comes from it either being very old and worn out, not tanned correctly, or even being artificial. And what at first looks like a feather hangning down... It looks like he may be wearing what's supposed to be an eagle fan as an earring.

I never knew medicine men were supposed to have CVs. :o Jervis manages to be both appalling and comical at the same time. And claiming to be "blood brother" to Laduke? That's a Hollywood lie about the Blackfoot.

I've always assumed the bear skin is as fake as he is. I think Frederica is right - I think it's one of those synthetic novelty rugs they sell for children's rooms.

There are plenty of pics on his MySpace site that are almost as weird. I linked to some of them further up in the thread, but he keeps adding more: Jervis's MySpace photos

HAHAHAHA So this must be the Shameonick Power Dance he channeled from The Bear Spirit Who Lives On His Head (not to be confused with The Dead Indian Who Lives In His Head. Or, wait, Sunbear... Uh... Maybe you've found Sunbear's secret name that only FlameButt knows): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cevn4xVts4g

Give him $1,000 and he'll teach the Power Dance to you, too.  8)

EYE TUWE SLO WAYA
HE WHO KNOWS
www.lakotaindianer.com


Der traditionelle Oglala Sioux (Lakota) EYE TUWE SLO WAYA - HE WHO KNOWS - ER, DER ES WEIß, entstammt einer alten Lakotafamilie und wurde im Jahre 1928 auf Pine Ridge geboren.
Seine Vorfahren väterlicherseits stammen aus der Familie von Crazy Horse und Sitting Bull und kämpften mit bei der Schlacht am Little Big Horn. Seine Mutter war Cherokee aus der Reservation in Carolina.

Als He Who Knows 15 Jahre alt war nahm ihn ein Cherokeefreund aus Carolina mit zum Rodeo. Dort verdiente er die ersten 5 Dollar seines Lebens. Nie zuvor sah er soviel Geld. Er entschied sich beim Rodeo zu bleiben und wurde professioneller Rodeoreiter und arbeitete als Indianercowboy auf verschiedenen Ranchen. Bis zu seinem fünfzigsten Lebensjahr bestritt er Rodeos.

Um seine Vision zu erfüllen ritt er vom 15. Mai bis 19. July 1987 von Iowa nach Cheyenne Wyoming.

Seine Tochter Carmen Rising Sun Pope heiratete den stammesübergreifenden Medizinmann Rolling Thunder. Carmen Rising Sun Pope ist eine Medizinfrau und durch ihre Heirat mit Rolling Thunder nun auch dem Paint Clan der Cherokee zugehörig. Sie schrieb das Buch: "Rolling Thunder Speaks - A Message For Turtle Iland". Rolling Thunder stammt aus einer Medizinfamilie, sein Großvater wurde ermordet als er noch ein kleiner Junge war. Rolling Thunders Interesse an Medizin war nicht nur in den Traditionen der Cherokee, seine Lehrer waren unter anderem Gary Horse von den Paiutes, Frank Fool‘s Crow von den Sioux und Mad Bear Anderson von den Tuscarora. Rolling Thunder war einer der ersten Medizinmänner, die auch Nichtindianer an seinen Zeremonien teilhaben ließsen und heilte.

Im Oktober 2008 war He Who Knows das erste Mal in Europa. Der WDR produzierte einen kleinen Beitrag über ihn: Link zum WDR Beitrag

His daughter Carmen rising sun Pope maried the inter-tribal medizine man Rolling Thunder. Carmen rising sun Pope is a medicine woman and belonges now,because of this marriage,  also to the paint clan of the Cherokee. She wrote the book "Rolling Thunder speaks- A message  for turtle island". Rolling Thunder comes from a medicine family, his grandfather was killed when he was a small boy. Rolling Thunders interrest for medicine was not just in tradition of the Cherokee, his teachers were also Gary Horse (Paiute), Frank Fools Crow (Sioux) and Mad Bear Anderson (Tuscarora). Rolling Thunder was one of the first medicine men, who allowed Not-NA to paricipate on Ceremonies and healed them.
Octobre 2008 He Who Knows was the first time in Europe. The WDR (a TV station) produced a small (TV)report about him: Link to the report

I found that today in an German forum and just wonder if anybody knows something about that.

I simply don't know how to handle this old man.
Dos he know what is going on here or does he just want to have a nice trip to Europe.
Does anybody here know him?

What is going on here? why going with Jervis?

mhmmm... just wondering.
