Follow up on my prior post, I misunderstood what the designation "certified charity" means on the GoFundMe web site.

Quote
Payments to GoFundMe ‘Certified Charity’ donation pages will always be delivered to the indicated organization. GoFundMe pages that contain the ‘Certified Charity’ graphic (top, right of screen) do not allow the user to receive payments. Instead, all donations are securely processed and delivered by our Donations partner FirstGiving.

Donors should only contribute payments to GoFundMe users they personally know and trust. We’re often asked how a donor can tell the authenticity of a personal cause found on GoFundMe. Unfortunately there is no way to 100% guarantee that a user’s GoFundMe donation page contains accurate or truthful information. As such, donors should not make payments to any campaigns or people unless they fully understand and trust the cause presented.

Long story short, I believe Maria Yraceburu's birth name is Mary Jo Gardner.

One of Maria's sons identifies himself as Jason Gabriel Massai Tucker.

Quote
My name is Jason Gabriel Massai Tucker. I am the youngest son of Maria Yraceburu, Quero Apache Diyin.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qPrKL75nmE

His birth date can be seen here in public records https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QJL7-LPKQ

The California Birth Index via ancestry.com lists Jason G Tucker, exact same birthdate, with mother's maiden name listed as Gardner.

Maria's other son is Jeremy P Tucker, in the California Birth Index his mother's maiden name is Gardner also.

So I'm working with the theory that Maria's original birth name was Gardner.

The birth date she currently uses can be found here: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QJVD-QB2R

I tried searching on my guess that perhaps her original first name is Mary. And there is indeed a Mary Jo Gardner with the exact same birth date, same location, who married a Jeffery Tucker.

To lay this out more clearly, here are the records, if I shouldn't post actual birth dates please do delete:

The names of Mary Jo Gardner's parents can be found on line, along with her mother's genealogy. Using that information, I worked on the family history through ancestry.com. I've only found white folks (including a Methodist minister) who made their way across the midwest to California.

As Maria Yraceburu she has posted on another family history site the bare outlines of her claims, no dates or locations given. She claims a Richard Yraceburu is her father. So I checked to see if I could build a family history tree based on her claims. But I can't, there are no records to verify any of it.

The Richard Yraceburu I do find is a member of the esteemed Yraceburu family of Fresno, they originally came from Spain. She is not claiming to be part of this family, maybe she "borrowed" their surname.

Maybe the truth about her heritage is something else entirely. We can be more than confident though that what she is claiming is not the truth.

This image is from the memorial service for Maria's maternal grandfather, Howard Samuel Baker, a Methodist minister, born 1908 Kansas died 2002 California. Maria is not claiming any NDN heritage on her mother's side. But this memorial does display paternal family relationships also.

Maria did a scripture reading. Her father and two brothers did the Masonic Service.

Maria claims she channels a great grandmother. She claims this great grandmother is named Naylin Lage.

Here she is channeling this supposed ancestor in response to a question: http://www.mariayraceburu.com/grandmas-channel/live-channel-with-naylin-lage-6302015

She uses a photograph taken by the photographer Edward Curtis and claims it is her ancestor.

She talks like a white person.

And the "channelling" put me in mind of this: https://youtu.be/QqaQ_Bhgmrc

Maria lures people in by claiming that she can reveal super secret inside teachings of Native Americans. Followers believe she is the real deal, and they stay with Maria so that they can learn the next supposed inner secret. She keeps people hooked in this manner.

Maria also claims to have a "Native American card" that she shows at entrance gates to sites she is taking her groups to. Unaware people then believe this is proof of her heritage.

But Maria is not enrolled, as far as I know she is not claiming that she is, so she would not have a legitimate CDIB card http://www.bia.gov/FOIA/Genealogy/ . And since she is not enrolled, she would not have a tribal enrollment card. What she would have is a permit. Here is an example of a tribal permit process http://www.navajonationparks.org/htm/monumentvalleypermits.htm A permit in her case has nothing to do with her heritage and citizenship, it just means she got a permit. She might also be getting educational entrance fee waivers.

If anyone reading this has gone to sacred sites with Maria, it would be wise for you to check up on the permit process in respect to the region you were in, so you can check what the rules are. If you have witnessed Maria breaking rules, please do report her to the relevant authorities.

For instance here is an example of important rules:

Quote
DO NOT desecrate Navajo lands and violate the trust of the Navajo people by discarding cremated human remains on tribal lands. Please respect our tribal beliefs.

NO ROCK CLIMBING on Navajo Land. Please abide by the humble religious requests of the Navajo people and do not climb the Monuments. “Navajo law will be strictly enforced on this issue,” Parks Department Manager.

This is the medicine of my grandfather, an Apache HolyMan who lived nearly 100 years. This man watched over many students each year during the annual Life Rites  Ceremonies and Challenges.  I watched him, being hovering over a number of us as we embraced our practices as EarthLife Counselors, EarthHealers, EarthPriests, EarthStorytellers, and EarthTime Charters, much like I do now through our SpiralDancing Life program. My grandfather was a big YEW supporter and tireless humanitarian. When he passed in 1973, we buried him beneath the sacred crystal waterfalls in Arizona, so that he could be at the heart of his mother when he finally left her.   Maria Yraceburu
 
Grandpa's Blessing quote
 
"My child, you were indeed given a special job in Creation, a job well suited to your natural inclination. Fulfill this joy with joy.  You have been created with special abilities which complement others.  Hidden within the ehart of each of you is a special challenge.  There is the seed which reflects Creation.  Seek it, and yiou will discover yourself and All That Is reflected in all created things.  See this in the night time and the dawning, in the summer clouds, in the rock, the tree, the feather... - Juan Ten Bears Yraceburu, Apache HolyOne, 196? - 1973

I so wish people would stop giving them money.

Through GoFundMe they have raised over $120,000 for land purchase and $3,000 for supposed future travel for Lynda.

Obituary for Maria's father http://www.theunion.com/news/obituaries/20724387-113/story.html - she is acknowledged as one of his children.

She has referred to him as her stepfather, this looks to be technically true. In records it looks like her parents met and married when she was about three. Most likely her birth certificate was amended, her surname is Gardner in the California birth index.

So she may have a different birth father. But I don't believe that he was an Apache man named Yraceburu who served in Vietnam, there are no records of such a person, and he would be found in census and military records. Plus the Yraceburus are from Spain.

Her teachings are not Apache. No matter who her biological father is, Maria Yraceburu/ Mary Jo Gardner is a fraud.  And Lynda's teachings are not Romani.

Let's stick to calling her by her real name(s), Naylin or Gardner, and not feed the delusion she spreads. Same with the Sleepwalking Dancer from England, Mr. Egan. And he sells faux ceremonies in freakin' Oxford...

He even shows off his shiny certificate with its shiny gold seal. Reel spirchul, and reel tradtional. I like how their "council" is just the two ceremony sellers. Lynda Tari is apparently "Healing Way Shiftholder Council Head." So that's a faux Romani claiming to teach mangled Dineh ceremony. The other faux ceremonies he's been taught to sell for profit include:

"Divination/Rolling Bones Counselling This is an intuitive counselling session, utilizing divination with the medicine wheel"

First part's Euro. Second part is faux Native, ripped off from Heywhatever Storm.

"Earth Healing...divination, crystal gridding, energy, or dream work."

Any guesses on the silliness that is crystal gridding?

"Healing Circle  Requires a minimum of three people."

That'd be a healing triangle, bubba.

"Day Quest Four hours out on the land."

For the fast paced world we live in, where even a faux vision quest takes too long. Now wander around a couple hours and call it ceremony.

"Medicine Wheel
Elders Honouring
Deisheshi - Birthing and Naming Ceremony
'ilna'naadzaa – Reunion Bonding - Wedding Ceremony"

Wedding as a RE union? Sounds like they're claiming married couple were married in past lives. They're peddling reincarnation as NDN.
