Andrew Biography:

Here his claims change again, including training by one of the original exploiters.

Seminar with Andrew Thunderdog Pollis | Saturday, 09. December 2017

The central theme is constituted by the sacred sciences at the base of most of the ancient esoteric cultures, including the totality of the Native tribes.
1. Mathematics and Geometry of time and space, their relations with cosmic and terrestrial forms and energies. The coherence of the universe.
2. The Sound - Geometry and Mathematics that are its own. The healing modalities of the Sound. Harmonies and disharmonies. The use of songs and musical instruments to alter levels of awareness in healing. Rhythms and Mathematics of resonance.
3. Symbols and Structures of energy. The ancient language. The multisensory world of the human psyche.
4. The multiverse and the movement of awareness in space and time. The mind and the soul as vehicles of the spirit.
5. The Earth Energy Networks and the function of the Holy Places. Water: imprinting and memory capacity.
6. Advanced Breathing Techniques for the concentration and transfer of vital forces.
Healing practices.
7. Altered awareness levels: Electromagnetic aspects and Frequencies issued.
The ceremonies practiced in the previous meetings will be proposed, including the Sweat Lodge and the evening ceremony of the Amazonian medicine.

Arguing with a cancer quack here reveals a bit more.
My background is in indigenous medicine that utilizes herbs and ceremonies, a tradition inherited from my family. I also utilize and research the frequency resonant technologies of Dr Royal Rife in conjunction with the use of nutritional and orthomolecular medicine. I am also a licensed paramedic and educator with post graduate studies in cell biology, genetics and psychology.

Another exploiter he learned from.

Andrew Thunderdog Pollis
Andrew is from Lakota tradition residing in New Mexico. He is a ceremonial leader, dancer of the sun and has worked from many years in the joint practice of techniques traditional care and modern emergency medicine. He was taught by Marcellus BearHeart and many other respected Elders. He is looking to continually learn and discover more about Native traditions than about the future of our planet and its inhabitants. We are pleased to have Andrew with us again to share his knowledge and experiences on the theme: Dreams and their teachers . This seminar will be divided into two parts. Saturday for everyone for basic teachings of the subject and Sunday to deepen with men and answer to their questions (women having their own teaching on the Sacred Feminine). Topics covered during these 2 days will touch on a broad area including: The plants that teach: • Psychotropic plants and the quest for knowledge • Psychotropic attitudes and approaches - organic versus synthetic • Preparation techniques for plants and the human body • Plants as food for the body, mind and soul. It should be noted that no substance will be ingested during this seminar. Teaching animals: • The Quest of Vision ceremony • The importance of the wild nature of the soul. • The shamanic soul as an animal spirit - how depression and anxiety get relate to being de-spiritualized. • The monkey and the snake; the animal as food for the body, the spirit and the soul. Human teachers: • The shaman and the mystic, religion and its leaders • Authentic personal experience versus faith and belief • The physical body as a storehouse of memory • The 8 original mothers • Diagnostic techniques and treatment of discomfort in indigenous cultures

MyLife is revealing.

That two-page PDF shows he is working with another Pollis, claiming to be of Blackfoot ancestry:

Kimberly Pollis est une artiste d’origine Blackfoot …

The rest of the short biography in there (in French) corresponds to this one in English:

Kimberly Pollis — 985 Following   305 Followers — Taos, NM, United States
My arts background is in Graphic Design and Illustration. Currently, I teach grade school children traditional tin smithing. " I feel it's most important to pass on knowledge to the next generation, to preserve the traditional arts." There are many projects in the community where I live that involve the youth and the arts. I stay involved. When I'm not teaching, I am constantly creating new pieces, working in my studio, on writing projects and preparing for the next show.

So how are Andrew Pollis and Kimberly Pollis related, and do they perform together on a grand scale?
