Frauds / Re: Derrick Grant Willey AKA Derrick Whiteskycloud
« Last post by educatedindian on August 11, 2020, 05:13:00 pm »
I received some research on him. The genealogy should be confirmed, but it's pretty damning, a white imposter with a criminal history of drug trafficking.

---------
Derrick Grant (Whiteskycloud) Willey genealogy background notes and sources

Noted grifter charging hundreds of dollars to vulnerable Indigenous peoples for psychic readings; guidance on UFOs and extra-terrestial visitors; cultural appropriator of several Indigenous nations for various sales of ‘authentic Indigenous arts and crafts’.

Today, “Whiteskycloud” and his wife, Marina Shelemba Willey both claim to be Metis. Notes on Marina’s claim included below Derrick’s.

Derrick’s claims came into “Metis” heritage in mid 1990s - “but not RR Metis” – (which is true, he is not at all acknowledged by the Metis Nation because he has no related ancestry). He counts himself among the “eastern metis” and he works hard at promoting them. His claim to Indigeneity is based on his assertions that his maternal grandmother, Jessie Nicholson, was Metis and Ojibway, who was somehow taken and adopted into the Mi’kmaq at Bear Nation reserve in New Brunswick. (The Bear Nation is in Nova Scotia on 3 separate reserves)

Claims various ancestry combos on his websites:

• English and Algonquin-Cherokee therefore “Metis”, claimed approx. late 1990s to 2007
• Then English and Algonquin-Cherokee, Ojibway, claimed approx. 2007 - 2017
• Then finally at Metis, Ojibway, Mi’kmaq, claimed approx. 2017 to date

http://www.bbsradio.com/bbc/between_two_worlds.php 2007

"I started this lifetime in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada and am of English and Algonquin-Cherokee (Metis) ancestry...I am a clairvoyant...I found myself making a shift towards healing and spirituality. My native ancestry always called to me, but now I had to acknowledge it. In doing so, I had flung open the doors wide to talents I had used sparingly. I realized that I had finally connected my physical self and my spiritual higher self as one and the possibilities were endless.”

His Metis webpage has a link to the “Deer Tribe”. (Metis do not have totems, spirit animals, nor clans).

http://www.naho.ca/MHC_Site/documents/HealthProfilesSeries01BC_000.pdf (images at bottom)

· "Derrick Whiteskycloud Surrey, BC”
· “Originally from Brandon, Manitoba, Derrick Whiteskycloud was drawn to the traditions of his Métis/Algonquin/Ojibway ancestry when he was thirteen years old. In the years between his roots in Manitoba and his current home in South Surrey, British Columbia, he traveled extensively across western provinces developing and sharing his gifts as a spiritual counsellor, teacher, artist, psychic, and medium.”

--------------------
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqxIZXV4kEY&feature=youtu.be Dec 16, 2014:
· Claims in 1964 – at 8 yrs old had his first alien abduction – had never heard of aliens before that and he got into his psychic abilities at 14 or 15 Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQ3Wv_91j4c

Details within mother’s tribute show on May 15, 2007: From BBS show - https://bbsradio.com/podcast/betweentwoworlds-may-15-2007 (notes it’s his 1 yr anniversary on BBS)

Per Derrick WSC, psychic medium and clairvoyant, May 15, 2007 :

Mother’s date of death: May 10th, 2007 at 3:05pm, (notes mother’s full name: Freda Elizabeth Rolfe Willey), died in Didsbury Hospital in Alberta, “Daughter of Robert Henry Rolfe”

Makes the claim that through their Rolfe line, they are therefore related to the late “Pochahontas” (notes at bottom)

Parents married: 52 years
Anniversary July 16, 2007
July 15, 2007 – said she would have been 75 on this date, so DOB July 15 1932

(Note: Dad died July 21 2007, with another show dedicated to him on July 24, 2007)

Derrick was with her at time of death, along with his son (“he came down”), his sister, both not named, his cousin, Sharon, and his dad.

Mentions son, sister, cousin Sharon (who would have been only 10) and dad attending at death bed. Dad still alive, but with dementia in wheelchair, diabetes; was a lumberjack

Mom was a biker “had her own hog when she was young”.

Derrick hunted rabbits with mom. They had .22 rabbit rifles; they hunted gophers on farm. Mom “dead shot” at 500 yds. Dad never did go hunting with him.

12:00 mins in: “They lived in the bush as well, because of their Aboriginal ancestry”. (So his maternal grandfather was Indig too???? Or just because his mom ‘had some native blood’)

RE: “Little brother passed away at 6 months old – “Garnet” (known child of Grant Willey and Freda)

Mother knew she was going to die because Garnet and her parents began to visit her some months before she passed. Asked Derrick to help her get a will together, 2 weeks before she passed. Apparently this was a sudden death, because Derrick saw no reason for a will – “she was in pretty good shape”.

21: 00 mins in, said he made it to mom’s beside at 10am – she died at 3:05pm on May 10, 2007. She was already in a coma. Had pneumonia and someone said she went through a stroke. He helped her go through the light. Feels she went through this because….?

25:57 mins in. Said he was so discombobulated by her death that when people asked where she was born, he said he didn’t know, he told them he didn’t know - but later he realized he “did know”, “I know where my mother was born. My mother was born in Manson, Manitoba”.

(This is why her maiden name – Rolfe, not Rath and her birth place, Manson, not Brandon, were in error on her family obit details included in the Willey family obits).

40:00 mins in: Dad was kicked off family farm at age 12 and he had to go out and earn his way on his own.

On mother: “She worked in hospice in a sanitorium in early 60s, Brandon, in the North Hill and she worked with First Nations and helped them with healing and she was Metis herself.”

She worked switchboard for the City of Brandon, and then ended up owning her own switchboard company.

She was a potty mouth and told people like it was.
Her favorite work was when they had a dairy farm.
The motto for this episode: “Never forget who you are. It’s important to learn about yourself”.”
“Next week, we’ll talk about animal totems!“

More info on mom from father’s tribute show, July 24, 2007:
https://bbsradio.com/podcast/betweentwoworlds-july-24-2007

29:00 mins in: Dad was passive. “Mom was the hothead” “Mom rode bikes in the 1960s, she used to ride Harleys” and she rode before she met dad”.

Story: She and her mom went to tea leaf reader – was told she would marry a man with initials GW. She was engaged to someone else who had a bike accident with a brain injury. He became a veg. 6 months later met “GW” and within 6 months they got married. “It was interesting because mom and dad used to argue all the time.”

31:20 mins in: “Mom was always known to be a hot head, she liked to take command of everything – well she had some native blood in her, that’s why, being Metis. Metis means half-breed.

I didn’t, we didn’t know mom had native blood at the time. We suspected it, but mom didn’t want to say anything.”

Mom’s brother – Uncle Norris, rancher in Alberta, show horses/”Egyptian arabs”, told them to move to AB.

That’s why they moved to AB in 1970.

33:20 mins in: - Dad wanted to move to BC. They moved to Vancouver BC in 1964 for a short time. Walt Disney passed same time. (That would have been 1966). Then they moved back to Alberta.

39:00 mins in: Mom’s best friend, Rose died 2 wks previous (approx. April 27, 2007) from a heart attack and mom was upset that the ride she counted on “to take her down there” didn’t come through and she couldn’t get to funeral. The ‘ride’ was his sister who didn’t take her, but went to rep the family. Derrick felt, “This wasn’t right and mom was very upset & ended up having a stroke”. Appears to be estranged from sister today.

Detailed within Father’s tribute show, recorded before attending service, July 24, 2007 From BBS show - https://bbsradio.com/podcast/betweentwoworlds-july-24-2007

Father passed July 21, 2007 in Didsbury, Alberta of pneumonia; was already suffering from dementia, diabetes, bad lungs from smoking, wheelchair. Bad Back, from fall from a truck when he was doing car bodywork job he had in Brandon.

Mentions he has 25 yr old son. (would be 38 yrs today)

Father also worked for Community Chevrolet, autobody man, in Winnipeg, Man.

Notes both parents born in 1932.

Parents married July 16, 1955 – 3 day wedding, “a typical Ukrainian wedding” (then he stumbled and re-stated it as a Ukrainian “type” of wedding; we celebrate for 3 days. Small cup passed at wedding, home brew, mom got hammered.

Derrick presided over their renewal of vows on 50th Anniversary.

Cousin Sharon (born 1957) at 8 yrs old, was flower girl at original wedding and 50 yrs later in 2005 she re-enacted flower girl again.

Willey children:
Derrick oldest
Sister – remains un-named.
Garnet, died at 6 months, crib death.

When Derrick was 14, the family moved to Calgary Alberta in 1970, lived there for less than a year, then they moved to smaller town for dairy farming.

17:00 mins in: Derrick left family farm at 19 and he started a truck stop café for truckers and farmers. Said parents sold off farm and asked to be partners. They served up old fashioned food,

“‘cause when you’re raised Ukrainian & Polish, the food is awesome perogies and cabbage rolls and the great burgers made by his dad.

Parents ended up taking over restaurant because: the relationship between the young woman he would marry down the road was not good between she and his parents, so he decided to move on. Must be to the mother of his son.

He left to go work on oil rigs.

He said he went to live in BC for a while, 16 hours away from Didsbury. Sister remained near parents in Alberta.

I'd be a lot happier if the poster used their actual name. All of the claims in this link need to be checked.

https://www.reddit.com/r/newsbotbot/comments/hm4vb1/nytimes_durek_verrett_friend_of_gwyneth_paltrow/
Durek's claims about his "special shaman lineage," which he says is the source of his "powers," are all based on lies.  Below are key details, and attached are scans of his book plus his aunt's book and Ancestry database info, corresponding to the facts.  There is a lot of info here but it is actually very simple. 

He is perpetrating fraud against innocent people who believe his lies, and the truth should be known by the public.  Too many people are being fooled by him and he is making a big profit from the lies. He also uses his girlfriend's royal title to increase his prices and pretend like he is respected in Norway and Europe.  Some people rely on him for serious advice about critical issues so they should be warned publicly that everything he says about his spirit guide Mamal and his special lineage is fake.

In his book he claims his lineage is "mystical AF (as fuck)."  Scans attached.  He makes many comments in print interviews, videos, and podcasts in which he talks about his special heritage based on spiritual communications with his great-grandmother Mamal.

Fortunately for those who appreciate truth, Shirley Verrett wrote many facts in her book that reveal Durek fabricated the foundation of his shaman career and his stories about Mamal.  His so-called "voodoo family culture" and "shaman lineage" are all fake.   Shirley was a successful opera singer who published her autobiography in 2003, titled “I Never Walked Alone.”  In her book, Shirley detailed her family background (attached).  Also there are US Federal Government databases that have extensive documents showing evidence of Durek's real family history since the early 1800s.

First a look at the lies he's been selling: 

Even before publication of his book in 2019, Durek made many public references to his grandmother Mamal, stating that she was the central figure in his shamanism.  He also publicly identified as a third generation shaman, and references to him being a third generation shaman still exist on his website and his Facebook page.  However, since 2019, he changed references to Mamal to great-grandmother (instead of “grandmother”) and changed his lineage rank to identify himself as a “sixth generation shaman.”   https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/review?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:e07ed7f1-2c85-4545-94cd-9b1bfccf024d

Shaman Durek is a fraud, he's a self proclaimed shaman liar! He is completely full of shit. Every other word out of his mouth is a lie. I know him personally and he molested many people close to me, males, all males, some underage. He needs to be arrested, he's a sexual predator who molested and continues to mollest many vulnerable people who come to him for healing, many are men, married and embarrassed, confused and ashamed at what happened so they don't want to speak up about it. . He is 100% gay and has HIV.
 He is now denying his HIV status since dating princess but everyone in LA knows he did a fundraiser with Jimmy Chamberlain for his kidney transplant from HIV. It was public knowledge until he hired someone and had everything on the web cleaned up. We have nothing against HIV but we do have a serious problem when someone doesn't disclose their health status and molests people. His whole entire story of being a third generation shaman, then a 5th generation shaman and now a 7th generation shaman is obviously a lie as we can see the generations and claims keep getting grander and grander. His background is all made up. His nationality is all a lie, he claims to be whatever suits him best for that time. I heard him say he was turkish, indian, african, hatian, egyptian, native american, norweigian, hawaiian. His ancestry.com
 files are public, he is zero percent norweigian. He is from the United States, born and raised, his parents are from America and so are their parents. WHY HASN'T THE NEW YORK TIMES OR THE DOCTORS DONE A BACKGROUND CHECK ON THIS SHAM MAN FRAUD OF A SHAMAN.

---------
On page 7 of his book, he writes: “My great-grandmother Mamal started visiting me in my dreams when I was five… my traditional shamanic powers come from my father’s side of the family.”

On the same page: “Mamal was a powerful medicine woman from Ghana, where she worked with spirits, herbs, and music, in service to her tribe—a mix of Mende, Yoruba, and Bantu traditions. When the slave traders infiltrated the African tribes, Mamal fled to Haiti where she studied hoodoo and became a spiritualist before ending up in New Orleans. Mamal’s shamanic powers are legendary in my family.”

On page 10: “My dad used to apprentice for his grandmother Mamal and for his aunt… both of whom practiced shamanism in New Orleans. So he had witnessed firsthand the trials and tribulations [of shamanism].”

And previously in a 2008 interview published by Frontiers Magazine, a gay publication in Los Angeles, Durek stated his father’s family’s tradition was Voudou, and his great-grandmother “came from Haiti to New Orleans where she worked with Voudou.”

On pages 219 / 220 of his book, he says: “My great-grandmother Mamal is my closest guide in the spirit world. She’s always with me.... I talk to my great-grandmother pretty much every day…. Mamal was a great medicine woman in Ghana. She fled Africa in the early 1800s when her tribe was invaded by the Dutch, and her family was put into the slave camps. Mamal escaped by boat, as a stowaway, and ended up in Haiti, where she studied healing and shamanism with the Haitan people. From Haiti, she landed in New Orleans, where she fell in love, got married, and had children, one being my grandmother. My grandmother married a Native American Blackfoot Indian; and together, they had my father."

On page 301 of his book, he thanks Mamal "for keeping our African heritage alive."

And now a look at the facts that tell a very different story:

According to Shirley Verrett’s autobiography and all US Government records, Mamal’s real name was Eugenie Morel.  Her nickname was Mamal.

Mamal was never in Africa and never in Haiti.  She was born in New Orleans in October 1862, which is where she lived her whole life and where she died November 1937, just days after Durek’s father turned 8.  See attached family tree summary.  If you or anyone you know has an Ancestry.com
 account, we can send you an invite to see the full tree electronically with all relevant historical documents attached.  A dozen of us in both Norway and the US have done a lot of research on Ancestry.com
 and related historical databases to make sure it's factual and transparent.

Mamal was Durek’s great-great-grandmother (not his great-grandmother as he says). Mamal’s parents were not from Africa either. They were both born and raised in New Orleans too. Mamal’s maternal grandparents, recorded in government documents as mulatto, were both born in France.  They emigrated from France to New Orleans in the early 1840s, and later moved to Mexico City.  Mamal’s paternal grandparents might have moved to New Orleans from Haiti, as Shirley Verrett’s book suggests, but documentation on their status is unclear. 

In the first chapter of Shirley Verrett’s autobiography, she adds her personal recollection of Mamal, who was her great-grandmother. On page 6 of her book, Shirley states Mamal was a strict Catholic. She recalls Mamal raised her children and grandchildren in a “strict Catholic household,” including Shirley’s mother Elvira and grandmother Rita.

Carrying on that Catholic tradition, Shirley’s mother (Durek’s grandmother) “strongly disapproved of anyone who practiced voodoo,” which she described as “negative arts.” She recalls her mother went from being a strict Catholic to an even stricter Seventh Day Adventist.

Therefore, Durek’s claims of “voodoo culture” in his father’s family’s tradition via Mamal are totally false. His claim that his father was Mamal’s “apprentice at the age of 11” is also false, since Mamal died when his father was barely 8. And according to Shirley’s book, the claims that Durek’s father witnessed Mamal’s shaman activities are also false.

In fact, the opposite was true. Shirley knew Mamal personally, and stated that Mamal and her family strongly opposed non-Christian practices.  Her writing attached states this.

We also found that as recent as January 2020 during a Michael Sandler podcast, Durek repeated a story about his father being Mamal’s shaman apprentice from age 11. This is clearly false based on the above facts.

Regarding Durek’s claims that Mamal was “a powerful medicine woman from Ghana," it is worth noting that the nation of Ghana wasn't formed until 1957. The Empire of Ghana, which was not in the same geographic location as the modern nation of Ghana, ended in the year 1100.

So Mamal could not have been “from Ghana" in any case.  Perhaps he intended to indicate a region in Africa that is currently Ghana.

However, on page 7 of his book, Durek states Mamal’s tribal ancestry was "a mix of Mende, Yoruba and Bantu."  Based on research, during the time of slavery the Bantu people weren’t anywhere near the area that is now Ghana.  They still aren't there today.  Also, the Mende people’s current territorial area is at least 400 miles away from modern Ghana and was even further away during the era of slavery. To have a “mix” of these tribes in 1700s Africa, among tribes that span a distance of 1,000 miles apart, would have been impossible.

Also the idea of an African woman during the slavery era fleeing from Sub-Saharan Africa to Haiti in order to avoid slave traders would also be impossible, unless she was a slave herself.  Sadly, the only transportation for a tribal African woman to go from Africa to the New World in that era was on slave ships. In any case, Durek’s stories have no relation to the real Mamal whatsoever.

So who does he think he has been talking to all this time?  The "spirit" he claims he speaks with daily clearly isn't Mamal.  Either he is just lying, and is really bad at researching his own family... or if he really does hear voices in his head, then the voices are lying.

Either way it is disturbing and fraudulent.  We're guessing it's just him who is a liar.  And the saddest part is that he is fooling people with these blatant lies about his mystical Ghana medicine woman lineage and shaman voodoo family history, charging people $1,000 per hour to listen to him lie and pretend to speak to "Mamal" to heal people of their problems and illnesses.  It would be comical if it wasn't dangerous and despicable.  People are trusting his input, including for medical advice, and even with children!  It's dangerous.

It is especially disgusting that he and his girlfriend tell others how important it is to live their truth and be authentic, but then in reality they are just selling expensive lies and totally fabricated stories about themselves.  We hope the facts will be published in both Norwegian and English so everyone can be aware of the truth in all the locations where they have been targeting people for this scam. https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/review?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:c76c23da-3865-4f02-b18e-54022aef9879

"In many interviews and in his book Durek lists details of an important life event, his "shaman right of passage" at age 27. On the Michael Sandler podcast last month Durek said that when he was 27 a spirit told him he would die soon and then he collapsed in his room in Belize. Durek said he called his friend Marcus who drove him to the hospital.

On the way to the hospital, he said he “smashed his head into the dashboard” of Marcus’s car because he was having seizures as they drove. Yet, minutes later on the same podcast Durek said an ambulance took him to the hospital and there was a paramedic talking to him in the ambulance.

On page 1 of his book, Durek says a medicine woman in Belize told him he would die soon -- not a spirit as he said on the podcast.  And in his interview with DUST magazine in 2018, Durek told the story of nearly dying at age 27 in Los Angeles.  He didn’t mention a jungle or medicine woman, as he does in the book.  Instead, he described his friend driving him to the hospital in Los Angeles where doctors “had to open my throat and my chest.”  These words are still on his website today under a post for that magazine interview, even though it contradicts the story in his own book.

On page 13/14 of his book, the emergency scene takes place in Belize and Durek said he underwent "a tracheotomy." Checking video and photographs from that time in 2001 to today we see no trace of tracheotomy scars on his neck.

Durek says on page 14 that Marcus sat next to him in the ambulance -- not driving him in a car in Los Angeles as he said in 2018 interviews. He also said in the book and in interviews that Marcus watched in the surgery room while doctors worked on Durek.  This is an impossible scenario, whether in Los Angeles or Belize, as no proper hospital allows a friend to watch in an operating room during emergency surgery.

In 2018, Durek stated the doctors had to “open my throat and chest,” yet on page 15 of the book he states that after the doctors’ efforts failed, they repeatedly used "defibrillator paddles" on his chest. That would also be impossible if doctors had really opened up his chest.

As a matter of common sense, it is also strange that he makes no mention of any specific names of hospitals, doctors, shamans, tribe elders or others he claims to have met. He doesn’t mention them in his book, or in the book acknowledgements, although he says they are an essential part of his shaman right of passage and his life in general.

For example on page 16 of his book he says he was paralyzed, spent two months in a coma, and couldn’t walk. On page100 he also said he had brain damage and organ failure.  Any reasonable person would imagine at least one of the medical staff who nursed him back to health would deserve a mention by name or a thanks to the institution where he recovered, but there is no mention.  Especially odd since he talks about the importance of expressing appreciation.  This type of fabrication would be funny if it weren't for the fact that a lot of people are being fooled by this nonsense and taken advantage of.

Also there are people online who say they know him and that he is HIV+.  It is a fact that HIV+ status can make kidneys fail.  So it seems like a much more likely cause that the near-death episode at age 27 was related to his HIV status.  Or maybe alcoholism too, which he talks about in the book.

A medical clue he gave in the book and in magazine interviews is "potassium overload." He says on page 14 that his potassium level was 10 mEq/L. That is called hyperkalemia. Hyperkalemia is more likely in HIV+ individuals and is the result of kidney failure due to some other factor, such as HIV. Google says: "Symptoms of acute hyperkalemia include muscle fatigue or paralysis, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat or heart attack, dizziness, nausea, and if not treated can lead to death". These are the same symptoms he said he had in his near-death right of passage.

Whatever the cause, if someone really almost dies and goes through all those terrible effects for months, they could at least know what country they were in when it happened, or a name of hospital or doctor who nurtured them back to health.  But this guy apparently isn't sure because his story changes all the time.  Just another example of habitual lying, and he apparently cannot keep track of his fabrications even when it's something as important as a so-called shaman right of passage.  "https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/review?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:125ef1a0-9f90-4112-b780-7efc51e2f2c4

"In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail in May 2019, Durek said he has “adapted to royal life in Norway with ease” because he said his “father was a multi-millionaire architect who built hotels in San Francisco.” He claimed in the same interview that he “grew up with yachts and servants.” He repeated this story about his background throughout 2019.

On page 130 of his book, he also said his father “was very African and very Haitian.” But then on page 220 of the same book he says his father’s father was a “Native American Blackfoot Indian.”

Family records and US Government documents show that both of those stories are false. Durek’s father, David Benjamin Verrett, was born and raised in New Orleans. Many generations before him on both sides of his family were also born and raised in Louisiana according to all government records. Documents related to his paternal grandfather’s family end with generations that were apparently born slaves in Louisiana, as the public records show on Ancestry.com
 and as Shirley Verrett’s book confirms.  So his description of his father as very African and very Haitian is totally false.

As for the claims his paternal grandfather was Blackfoot Indian, that is also false.  Amazing that in the same book he claims his father was very African/Haitian but then in a different part of the book also claimed his father was half Native American.  It is incredible that any book publisher in the world could release such garbage.  In any case, Blackfoot territory has always been located in central and western Canada, more than 2,000 miles northwest from Louisiana. Records show no one in the Verrett family tree traveled to that region. In fact, no one went West until Durek's paternal grandfather moved to California in the late 1940s. Documents show every member of his father’s lineage were listed as “black” in all government census records.  No Native Americans at all.

Regarding the story of his father being a wealthy architect, public records show Durek's father was a laborer and construction worker in his youth, then became a contractor. He settled in Sacramento, where Durek was born in the 1970s, then moved to Foster City near San Francisco. Durek's father ran his contracting work out of his home, which was a modest single-family property in an average neighborhood.  According to the California state contractor database, the bond on his contractor license was a maximum of $7,500 USD, indicating that the jobs he did were on a relatively small scale. Durek’s father was not an architect, and never held an architect license according to the database of CA state board of licenses.

Durek’s father filed for bankruptcy twice, most recently 2010. Sadly, he lost his home in Foster City, which was going into foreclosure before it was offered for short sale. His final bankruptcy filing in 2010 indicated no savings and negative net income per month.  The 2010 bankruptcy filing is available on the PACER public database and a copy of it is attached.

Based on the facts, which are all publicly viewable, every story Durek has told the media and his followers about his "Native American multi-millionaire architect father" is totally false."https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/review?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:8edc782a-df49-4890-93d3-c3c1530738dd

"Facts about Durek’s Norwegian ancestry story:  His mother is Sheila Farmer, born 1943 in New York. She was Durek’s father’s third wife (of four total that we can confirm). Records show she has rented a small apartment near Queens, NY for the past 22 years. On page 7 of his book, Durek states “My mother comes from a long line of Norwegian oracles, as well as Native American medicine men/women.” And on page 8: “Ancient Viking spirituality runs deep in her roots. Rejected by her stepfamily early on because they were black, and she was white…”

However, based on all documentary evidence of his family tree, including photographs posted to his own social media accounts, his mother is black. She apparently doesn’t have Norwegian lineage, nor Native American lineage. The 1930 Census shows Sheila’s mother, Vera Tyson, was born in Pennsylvania, the child of two “negro parents” as described by government records.  Vera’s maternal grandparents were born into slavery in Virginia, while her paternal grandparents were born in Florida directly after the end of slavery in the late 1860s. Both sets of their parents were likely slaves in Florida as well.

Government records show Sheila’s father was Oscar Eugene Farmer, Sr., born 1914 in Maryland. The 1920 Census shows him as a “black child” and both his parents were also listed as “black” and born in Maryland too. It appears likely both sets of their parents were born into slavery in Maryland.

Durek has recently been telling a story that his mother is part Norwegian. In an interview with DUST magazine in late 2018, he said his mother is part Russian too. However, based on documentary evidence, it appears these stories are false.The origin of the Norwegian story may arise from a point in Durek’s grandmother’s life when it appears she had a boyfriend named Edward Brinn.  Edward was half Norwegian and half black. Edward’s grandparents were from the West Indies. His father was a black man born in the United States, while his mother was a white Norwegian immigrant. Edward’s father was deaf and orphaned as a child. A close family friend who lived with Edward’s father in a deaf children’s home in New York later adopted Edward. That man’s family name was Urquhart, so Edward became Edward Brinn Urquhart. Recently, it appears Durek's mother Sheila began using the name "Veruschka Urquhart."  The reason for this change is unclear, but documentary evidence shows both of her parents were black Americans who had no relation to Norway, no relation to Native Americans, and no relation to Russia.  See the Ancestry.com
 link for her full lineage details and related government documents."

------
"Checking criminal background and court records in the state of California: Los Angeles Superior Court records show Durek married a foreigner (apparently a Czech citizen) in Los Angeles.  His wife's name was Zaneta Marszalkova.  It appears likely it was an attempt to defraud the US government into issuing Zaneta a green card.  When the scheme failed, Zaneta filed for divorce from Durek in 2008 and it was finalized in 2009.  This record is available at the LA Superior Court database.
LA Superior Court records also show that Durek's half-brother, David Benjamin Verrett, Jr., born in 1956, lives in the South Central LA area.  He has worked as a security guard for many years, but last year had his security guard license canceled after he disobeyed court orders related to alimony and/or child support payments. 

The San Francisco area court systems show Durek was previously arrested at least 3 times as an adult in San Francisco.   People online who claim to have known him since his youth have said that in addition to his multiple adult arrests, Durek was also previously arrested and convicted as a juvenile.  Juvenile detention reports aren't publicly viewable, but the online posts say he was a neighborhood thug and bully, and when he was a teenager was convicted of arson for burning down a house in his neighborhood, and selling drugs including to children as young as 12.

During the 1990s, San Francisco court records show Durek was also arrested and charged by the State of California for riding public buses without paying the fares.  Court records in San Mateo county also show two more criminal offenses.  Charges were brought against him by the State of California, but those criminal files from San Mateo aren’t viewable online and must be obtained by visiting the courthouse to research in person in San Mateo."

The photos of them are just as unintentionally amusing. Claiming to be "traditional healers" of South American tribes when it's obvious any NDN ancestry is distant, if at all. "Pancho" might be criollo, a Latino of all European ancestry.

But it's more likely they are North American, US whites deluding themselves into peddling a ridiculous hodgepodge, with their made up faux versions of what they think are North American Native names, with their faux versions of Hinduism, Buddhism, goofy crystals and Lemuria, all passed off as South American Native belief.

The main thing left is to find their actual legal names rather than have to refer to them by their made up offensive names. Moved to Frauds.

Lydia's biography at the site originally pointed to by Totonacjv is so hilariously incredible I'll quote it in full:

LYDIA THUNDER BUFFALO WOMAN
Traditional practitioner initiated since 2000 into the Shipibo-Conibo tradition of sacred plants in the Peruvian Amazon.
She’s a Tertön (a discoverer of a Terma esoteric treasure of the Tibetan tradition) and SIBA is the Terma she is responsible for.

Her path, under two indigenous teachers of Amazonia led her to a very strict and ever-demanding traditional practice. This path, far from the western standards of life, was not free from temptations to quit. But persistence and a grounding of the heart overcame the doubts and fears inherent to any authentic shamanistic practice.

It is in the heart of the forest while overcoming both uncomfortable and ecstatic processes that she understands the intimate link between our genetic personal memory and the history of humanity. This allows her to experience in her own body, the connection between Earth and the Cosmos, and between human beings and the Netheru (Gods and Goddesses of all traditions).

In 1994, during a Shamanic ritual the arrival of SIBA is communicated to her.

This name, SIBA, returns to her in dreams and visions but it is not until 2007, after having overcome intense challenges on a personal and esoteric level, that she is visited by the first Nether. This Nether announces that she will need to travel across the world and design a system for transmuting archaic limitative programmings. The “body” of this system is a mineral one (the mineral reign is the first of all the reign, which, consequently, would allow access to the most ancient information).

From 2008 to 2011, with faith and dreams as her only guidance, Lydia takes off on the search for programming codes. These codes are actually etheric, information of sacred geometry located all around the globe:

Tula in Mexico, Aswan in Egypt, Titicaca Lake in Peru, Crestone in North America, Haridwar and Varanasi in India and eventually in the land of the Tertöns: Tiger’s Nest, located in the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayas.

These technologies were hidden approximately 14000 years ago by the creator of SIBA, a very enlightened priestess of the ancient civilization of Lemuria, in order to be found today by the Tertön.

On the 21st of August in 2008 the first SIBA codes were programmed in a crystal body. This is the day of its official birth into a precise geometric system consisting of several crystals and an elaborate protocol. Throughout the years, the system has expanded to include complementary crystals at each new programming. SIBA is composed of four techniques: The Wheel of Time, Metatron’s Tetraedron, The Winged Snake and The Chant of the Phoenix.

The Winged Snake is a technique to transmute imprints linked to the fall of sacred sexuality, leading to all sexual deviances.

During the programming of this technique, Lydia is faced with dark and vampire-like forces, never encountered by her before, that leads her to almost give up her quest. It is then, in July of 2010, that she experiences for the first time the “descent” of the great Netheru (Gods and Godesses of all traditions), the Nation of the Stars. They transmit to her the sacred language Meïa, a key deprograming language with irresistible power over ancient and limitative programmings. Since then, Meïa has been an integral part of the system and its practice.

During the night between the 17th and the 18th of March 2011, SIBA completes the programming for the Chant of the Phoenix in Peru after having integrated the Bhutan programming codes into its crystals.
This night celebrates as well Lydia’s graduation ceremony to the rank of Muraya or “Master healer” in the Amazonian tradition. This means that from now on she has no other teachers but the spirits and is trusted with greater responsibilities.

In June 2012 she receives instruction to go on a quest for new programming codes. She departs in 2013, first to Abydos in Egypt, then to Baalbek in Lebanon and Cappadocia in Turkey. SIBA then reaches a new dimension by acquiring its fifth technique: The Chrysalis.

From September 2013 and for a few months, Lydia receives a blessing in the form of a highly initiatory challenge that leads her to transcend many of her own limitative beliefs. She is then firmly and totally dedicated to incarnating and transmitting the ways and the teachings of the Terma.

The Great Ancestors give her the name of Lydia Thunder Buffalo Woman as she is offered the fleece of a black bison who has given his life during a traditional Native North American ritual. The honour of wearing it as a sacred headdress leads her to be all the more loyal as a Medicine Woman of service to the White Buffalo Calf Woman, the Great Star Nation, and to SIBA, the Doorway to Freedom.

Today, SIBA and her Tertön follow their quest and their practice in diverse areas of the Planet. They actively collaborate in the current regeneration of the Planet’s Sacred Ecology.

All boldings are in the original text. I have also italicized a couple of places, indicating underlying links to other pages.

While Tertön and Terma are terms from Tibetan Buddhism, I fail to see her connection to that tradition.

And by the time she claims Lemuria as the origin of the "hidden treasure", what else is there to do than declare her another New Age nut case?

You will also find this couple on other fancy New Age websites, e.g. https://nacaome.foundation/:

Lydia Thunder Buffalo Medicine Woman
She is a traditional practitioner initiated since 2000 in the Shipibo/Conibo tradition of sacred plants of the Peruvian Amazon where she co-created a healing center with her Shipibo teacher.

In 2008, she developped the technology SIBA and has been working with both SIBA and the traditional medicine since then. She became « maestra », teacher-healer in the Ayahuasca tradition in 2013.

She travels all around the planet with her partner Pancho Crazy Deer to participate actively in the awakening of Gaïa’s Kundalini, activating sacred places during medicine circles on key meridians of the earth.

She is now based in Chirripo, Costa Rica where she’s is the guardian of a sacred land named Terma Tierra meant to become a sanctuary for wildlife, sacred activities and renewal of indigenous traditions/way of life: Reforestation, conservation of medicinal plants, sacred architecture, permaculture, rituals for balance and harmony, connection with divine laws and deep healing.

Pancho Crazy Deer
He has been following the native traditional teachings of the Shipibo/Conibo since 2010, as well as SIBA’s teachings with Lydia Thunder Buffalo Medicine Woman.

Lydia Thunder Buffalo Woman and Pancho Crazy Deer are also joined to the other couple you started a topic about (JP Spears and Amber Spears):

Meet Our Curanderos
Lydia, Thunder Buffalo Woman, is a traditional practitioner initiated in 2000 in the Shipibo/Conibo tradition of sacred plants of the Peruvian Amazon. In 2008, she developped the technology SIBA and has been working with both SIBA and the traditional medicine since then. She became « maestra », teacher-healer in the Ayahuasca tradition in 2013. Pancho, Crazy Deer, has been following the native traditional teachings of the Shipibo since 2010, as well as SIBA’s teachings with Lydia. Before that, he spent years as a Buddhist monk in Tibet and as a music teacher.

Lydia and Pancho both dedicate their lives to healing, guiding and teaching the sacred ways of Pachamama, Mother Earth, the path of sacred ecology. They travel all over the planet to share their medicines with all those who wish to free themselves from their limitations.

Lydia and Pancho are “Energy Surgeons” who use a powerful crystal technology named SIBA during the medicine rituals that guide each guest deeper into their healing. Both SIBA and Ayahuasca bond together and open portals directly to the ancestors memories where the source of the issues and blockages can be found. They provide individual treatments on each retreat guest during the ceremonies.

In addition to this and https://sibaterma.com/en/home/ they are active on another website:
