For $2,500, anyone may start up a Native American Church branch or group to receive tax exempt status and be protected while using peyote and other "sacred herbs" in pipe ceremonies which may be sold for profit. Through James Mooney, a Berkeley group established Medicine Path as a branch of Native American Church. To buy a certificate of authenticity as a Native American Church, all one needs to do is add item to cart and use a credit card at this link: http://www.nativeamericanchurches.org/store/branch-church/branch-church-registration?product=3533

Medicine Path run by George Bertelstein, a Jewish psychologist, and his associate, Jeff Wright, recruit young urban professionals through their counseling practices. What's known is that a good many Medicine Path members have former substance abuse histories but so long as drugs are communally distributed under guise of being "sacred" like communion, inhaling psychoactive drugs is "not taking drugs".

Medicine Path was chartered in March 2007 as a "religious group" and is tax exempt in the State of California. Such is declared on the Medicine Path web site at this link: http://medicinepath.org/about/

"A non-profit religious corporation C2985084 Chartered in the state of California March 30, 2007"

and,

"-Medicine Path Native American Church operates under the blessing of Oklevueha Earth Walks Native American Church of Utah Inc. (Federal ID#841402813), the Rosebud Reservation Native American Church of South Dakota and Ancestral Medicine Arts, Qosqo, Peru" The latter is run by Don Victor Estrada.

Offshoot groups are being born, one run by astrologer Lisa Cianci of Topanga, California. She is also an associate of Medicine Path native American Church. Her group is called Cross Bull Ranch. Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/crossbullranch?sk=wall states "Woman are Not Permitted to "Sit Up" in Ceremony
During Their Moon.
It is said that a Woman's Energy is SO POWERFUL DURING HER MOON
THAT SHE CAN CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF ENERGY IN THE TIPI
WITH HER MERE PRESENCE.
Women are Permitted to Hold a Separate Ceremony Called a "Moon Lodge"

There are some interesting comments by either James Mooney or the person who hosts his videos on youtube (theyoutube channel is named endthedrugwarvision), in relation to the video titled the Truth about the Phoenix goddess temple


I'm just C&Ping them in case Mooney or his representative (is it his son's channel?) removes them (swear words asterisked out by me and emphasis mine)

Quote
@relapse808 All women take money for sex. Rflmao! Are you f***ing stupid? You really need to do some basic feminst theory studying? and get bacl to me. Witches have sex for Satan if they aren't working to 'end the drug war'. I may be 'stupid' as a 'two dollar trick' but you are a playing destroying nazi c**t, and how smart is that?

@shaktifiredancer 'meds' are a 'fiction' used to create 'mental illness'. Do you want to talk about 'mental illness' in a construct of mass murder? Rflmao! All women get pimped to someone for? something. It's the nature of having a vagina. You want to do what about that? Make it so they only put out for your demon god YHVH, the 'drug war' 'god' who commits 'mass murder' 40,000 times a day.

So he's saying that being pimped out is inevitable if you are a female person.  

Classy.

However it may help explain something I have been wondering about, which is the relationship of a certain "Amrita" Mooney to James Mooney.

Amrita appears on youtube videos hosted by the very vocal PGT supporter and newage sex worker Kamala Devi, for example, here she is in a "comedy" (allegedly) video called the Tantric Dating Game (explicit language - NSFW)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjS4S4MDO9M


She also appears in other videos by Kamala Devi as a youtube search for "Amrita Mooney" will demonstrate

Here's Kamal Devi's meetup group with Amrita Rooney involved
http://www.meetup.com/SDPoly/events/20805151/

She is clearly very involved in the polyamory / "tantric" scene linked to the PGT and from her participation in the videos it appears fairly likely, that, just like the other people involved, she is a newage sex worker.  

I'm just wondering what relationship she has to James Mooney?  His daughter?  Granddaughter? Daughter in law?

I was thinking that maybe it was just a coincidence that Mooney shared a surname with this woman, but given the comments on the Truth about the PGT video I'm thinking that maybe he's the kind of man who thinks nothing about pimping out his female relatives?

Just sharing some thoughts and concerns.

edited to add

Amrita is definitely not her real name, I think that the answer may be in this video (NSFW) titled Monogamy Monologue by I Am Rita Mooney

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f4QeHyp3fQ


so her real name is Rita Mooney

here's her FB page

This has got me wondering about another possible family connection to Mooney

According to Wikipedia (possibly not the most reliable source but the page is very well referenced with credible external links) there was an  ethnographer called James Mooney (1861–1921) who lived for several years among the Cherokee and who published many papers regarding various native ceremonies and culture namely:


Mooney, James. Linguistic families of Indian tribes north of Mexico, with provisional list of principal tribal names and synonyms. US Bureau of American Ethnology, 1885.
Mooney, James. Sacred Formulas of the Cherokees. US Bureau of American Ethnology, 1885-6 Annual Report, 1892.
Mooney, James. Siouan tribes of the East. US Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin, 1894.
Mooney, James. The Ghost-dance religion and the Sioux outbreak of 1890. US Bureau of American Ethnology, 1892-3 Annual Report, 1897.
Mooney, James. Calendar history of the Kiowa Indians. US Bureau of American Ethnology, 1895-6 Annual Report, 1900.
Mooney, James. Myths of the Cherokee. US Bureau of American Ethnology, 1897-8 Annual Report, 1902.
Mooney, James. Indian missions north of Mexico. US Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin, 1907.
Mooney, James. The Swimmer manuscript: Cherokee sacred formulas and medicinal prescriptions, revised, completed and edited by Frans M. Olbrechts, 1932.
Mooney, James , 1861-1921. "James Mooney's history, myths, and sacred formulas of the Cherokees :
containing the full texts of Myths of the Cherokee (1900) and The sacred formulas of the Cherokees (1891) as published by the Bureau of American Ethnology : with a new biographical introduction, James Mooney and the eastern Cherokees, by George Ellison," Asheville, NC: Historical Images, 1992.

apparently this James Mooney was Irish Catholic.


So I'm wondering whether this man might have been an ancestor of Mooney?  Another possibility could be that the current James Mooney took his name from the late James Mooney in the hope that some credibility might rub off on him?

It would be interesting to find out more about this.

Mooney posted his family tree on his Native American Church web site as if to give his pedigree credibility and so rightly able to bless anybody and their mother's "church"-- his "family tree" is at this link but readers will need to have magnifying vision since the font is in extreme fine print: http://www.nativeamericanchurches.org/jmgenealogy

Mooney also took a 'Native American DNA test' through Genetree and posted results on same site at this link:

His ancestry is not very relevant. There's no sign or Mooney ever growing up in or known to any NDN community, or accepted today as NDN. Even more important, he is not NAC and neither is his phony church. His group has been repeatedly denounced by the actual NAC.

Even his attempt to prove his ancestry has holes you can drive a truck thru. DNA tests can't prove a specific tribe. And the printed evidence he has claims he is Cherokee and Creek, not Seminole.

Posting his application to a fraudulent group, the "Southeastern Cherokee and Creek", sure doesn't help his case.

Here's the "Chief Little Dove" character Mooney claims told him he was descended from Osceola. She seriously claims to be a Cherokee princess. ::)
And to have domain over the Bahamas!

Apparently the "tribe" changed its name a few times.

Indian Reservation Plans Fall Powwow
November 15, 1987
The Cox-Osceola Cherokee-Creek Indian Reservation in Orange Springs will present its fifth annual Fall Powwow and Festival Friday through next Sunday. Activities will include such Indian traditions as knife and spear throwing contests, canning and baking contests, Indian dress competitions, food and dancing. Hours of the powwow will be 10 a.m.-midnight each day.

The reservation land is north of Silver Springs and was owned by Indians until their relocation in the last century. Principal Chief Little Dove Buford and her husband, Reservation Chief Running Buck, have been able to purchase most of the lost land.

NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH
by: Rezinate

Quanah Parker is generally recognized as the “founder” of what has become the Native American Church – a belief system that incorporates the use of peyote as a healing agent and a vehicle that enables the user to experience visions, empower themselves,and seek guidance.

As peyote contains hallucinogenic properties it was a given that over time it would attract those seeking merely to get “high”, also a given that the ceremonies themselves would become corrupted and the trappings of the new agers such as crystals would insinuate themselves, accompanied by a cobbled together provenance of being the real deal.

It isn’t a uncommon now to find new agers frequenting such ceremonies and terms like “minister” being applied to those who conduct them, the transition from an indigenous healing and spiritual ritual into a commercial venture is in  full swing as the schism between tradition and pretense increases.

I’ve seen adds on the net where a person need only to send twenty five dollars to be “ordained” a minister in some bogus church, I suspect a great many of  the practicing NAC “ministers” and “medicine persons” are little different.

Another toll of the bell sounding an alarm about the corruption of indigenous ceremonies from the southern most tip of this hemisphere to the northern most.

There may come a time when such “ministers” will seek to broadcast their “services” either on the net or via cable much the same as televangelists do, perhaps they will ask for “love donations” and preach in lieu of a “prosperity doctrine” a peyote doctrine that advises one need only lay their hands on the screen or monitor to be healed-send your prayer requests, distance being a non hindrance.

Sounds too outlandish to consider? What is occurring today would have been deemed likewise a few decades ago.

The “SUM” of APPROPRIATION

“Cultural appropriation is a by-product of imperialism, capitalism, oppression, and assimilation. Imperialism is the creation and maintenance of an unequal cultural, economic and territorial relationship, usually between states and often in the form of an empire, based on domination and subordination. Imperialism functions by subordinating groups of people and territories and extracting everything of value from the 1st Nations people and territories. In the case of cultural appropriation, culture is treated as a “natural resource” to extract from People’s beliefs, values and traditions.

Cultural appropriation is profitable. Objects and traditions (but not the people) of marginalized cultures are seen by the dominant culture as exotic, edgy, and desirable, which translates into profits. Capitalism works best when people are not individual people with celebrated differences, but identical workers, cogs in the machine. Once diverse cultural identities are stripped away, the only culture left to identify with is capitalism culture.

This is one aspect of assimilation, in which marginalized communities lose their cultural markers and are folded into the dominant culture.” ~anonymous~

Merged with the older thread. This is Mooney's fraud outfit posing as the NAC again. I wonder why they relocated to Indiana from Utah. There are actual tribes in the state like the Miami, plus people with family stories of distance ancestry like the Wea Band.

But "Apache and Cherokee of Indiana"? Who would fall for that?

Another of their websites.
http://nativeamericanchurches.org/

For $200 they will give you a membership card they claim entitles you to carry and use peyote. They even claim a cop can go to jail for trying to detain you. This sounds like a nonsense militia/sovereign citizen claim and is a disaster waiting to happen. I'll bet we will hear about some ONAC member getting into a violent confrontation with cops sometime soon.

JWM lists his children here http://nativeamericanchurches.org/genealogy-james-warren-flaming-eagle-mooney/ , one is named Raging Bear.

Michael Rex Mooney, aka Raging Bear, is continuing the family business, in this case for OKLEVUEHA NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF HAWAII, INC. , and concerning marijuana.

Quote
Plaintiffs explain that marijuana use is a crucial part of NAC tradition and that members consume marijuana as a sacrament and eucharist in their religious ceremonies and rites, in addition to or as a substitute for peyote, which is their "primary sacrament/great-medicine of choice." All 250 Oklevueha members consume marijuana in religious ceremonies. Members use marijuana to enhance spiritual awareness and facilitate direct experience of the divine. Mooney uses marijuana daily, and other Oklevueha members use marijuana in "sweat" ceremonies, which occur twice a month at various private locations in Oahu and are only open to NAC members.

His actual genealogy is interesting to look over. He was born in 1944, California. https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VGX2-LP5

Some of his claims http://nativeamericanchurches.org/uncategorized/the-making-of-a-seminole-medicine-man/ http://nativeamericanchurches.org/genealogy-james-warren-flaming-eagle-mooney/

Looking over public records and other peoples extensive work on these families - no NDN heritage.

He claims his paternal grandfather was adopted at a young age, consensus is that he was indeed adopted. JWM (James Warren Mooney "Flaming Eagle") claims he knows who his paternal grandfather's parents were, all other family historians do not agree with him. There is a good in depth discussion of the possibilities here http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~haddockfamily/familyconnections9.htm .

Looks to me like JWM took some reality and added in a whole lot of false fantasy.

Here's what a family researcher had to say recently, her words are definitely pointed at JWM's claims:

Quote
This note is to the descendants of America Simpson of Warrick County, IN, and of James Mooney of Washburn, we are not the descendants of Sitting Bull or Flying Eagle or whoever else that some idiot researcher has our family portrayed. We have four DNA test that prove we are of the European model. America Simpson was not an Indian and neither was her husband, George Simpson - furthermore, we can prove it.

http://genforum.genealogy.com/simpson/messages/10504.html

As has been said before here, DNA tests are not proof. JWM hinges a lot of his NDN heritage claims on a woman named America Simpson. But the facts about this particular woman are not yet entirely known, and she did not raise his paternal grandfather. His paternal grandfather was raised by a man of Irish heritage.

JWM refers to his paternal grandmother as "Creek half breed". That claim looks to be false.

I think here http://nativeamericanchurches.org/uncategorized/the-making-of-a-seminole-medicine-man/ JWM is claiming that he himself was adopted:

Quote
There is legitimate understandings that Rex was not James’s biological father but signed James’s Birth Certificate.
 

Long story short, as everyone already knows, JWM isn't who he says he is.

Well that's a load of BS! I know quite a few NAC people. And the only drug they use is PEYOTE. I know, and have met, quite a few NAC roadmen. They discourage drug and alcohol use. Mooney's bunch is just a batch of hippies, imo. Now, understand, I am not opposed to people using marijauna. I don't use it, but I know people who do. I voted for legalization. But to claim it as a traditional part of the NAC? BS.

Michael Rex Raging Bear Mooney's Hawaii operation was OKLEVUEHA NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF HAWAII, INC., registered 2009, then in 2011 the name was changed to THE NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF HAWAI`I INC.

In Utah James Warren Flaming Eagle Mooney still has OKLEVUEHA EARTHWALKS NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF UTAH, INC., registered 1997, still active.

There are several versions of this corporation listed as "doing business as":
OKLEVUEHA NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF WHISPERING WOLVES
OKLEVUEHA N.A.C. OF HEARTSONG LIVING CENTER
OKLEVUEHA NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF TAYLORVILLE

Former name was OKLEVUEHA EARTHWALKS, INC.

He also has OKLEVUEHA NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF BEAR RIVER

Somewhat of a dizzying array of names, some of these are expired.

I don't see any corporations with the word OKLEVUEHA in registered in Indiana. There was a NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH OF INDIANA INC, inactive since 1988, does not have JWM's name on it.

This is quite the list of ceremonies:

Quote
1.    The Birth (Blessing Way) Ceremony – honors the passing into a new existence of all earthly beings.

2.    The Sacred Breath Ceremony – Two important purposes for this ceremony are 1) to have the Great Spirit infiltrate every cell of one’s body and 2) to assist the participant in experiencing unconditional love.

3.    Holy Anointing by the Laying on of Hands Ceremony – Throughout history Medicine People have been aware of the effects of touch and contact with the essences of plants, oils and herbs on the body, mind and emotions.  They utilize ceremonial touch and fragrance of seeds, roots, barks, flowers and leaves in ritual healing that assist in the empowering and healing process.

4.    The Marriage Blanket Ceremony – honors the public with an open commitment of two or more people to serve the human family unit for life and all eternity.

5.    The Passing on of Spirit Ceremony – honors the passing of any earthly beings into the next realm of Existence.

6.    The Potlatch Ceremony – Distribution of Wealth.

7.    The Sacred Prayer Pipe (Casuse and/ or Chanunpa) Ceremony – Three important purposes for this ceremony are; 1) Remind the participants to honor and respect the power of prayer, 2) assist in unity and respect of male and female differences, and 3) activate the law of synergy to assist all participants in achieving their heartfelt desires.

8.    The Sacrament (Peyote) Ceremony – Three important purposes for this ceremony are 1) to rediscover ones innate goodness, 2) assist in the forgiveness process for oneself and others, and 3) to reside in truth (Good Health-Spiritually, Emotionally and Physically).

9.    The Ghost Dance (Spirit Dance) Ceremony – A celebration of the Millennium and living in gratitude.

10.  The Sun Dance Ceremony – Sacrifice oneself for the people and to lead a life of service.

11.  The Sweat Lodge (Amacheekee / Inipi) Ceremony – Two important purposes for this ceremony are 1) remind the participants to honor and respect the creative process and 2) assist the participants to honor and respect all of one’s relatives, especially one’s biological mother and father.

12. The Vision Quest or Hanblecheyapi Ceremony – enables human beings to re-remember and understand the mission that they had previously committed to achieving before their spirit assumed its earthly body and introduce them to or discover their spirit guides or inspirations.

13. The Green Corn Ceremony - With regard to the Seminole’s Green Corn Dance, Danny Billie says: ”It defines who we are and what we are as traditional Indian people. It is the heart and soul of the traditional Seminole way of life.”
http://nativeamericanchurches.org/spirituality/

From the videos on this site, looks like they are working hard to market to people who are going through life distress, including feeling suicidal. Flaming Eagle says he himself suffered from "manic depression disease" and was on lithium. I'm not really clear on what their  "ONAC Habilitation Programs" are. http://www.ista-onac.org/habilitativeprograms

Quote
What we provide:  Orthomolecular and Alternative Mental Health Care Programs for Holistic Alcohol and Drug Treatment and Psychiatric Medication Withdrawal.  We offer lab testing, detoxification by natural means, therapy and alternative healing programs and incorporate indigenous ceremonies with qualified medicine people when appropriate.

In Sedona, but of course. :)

And James can be consulted with online.

Quote
James is available for online consultations in a number of areas of interest.  His diverse background in law enforcement, corrections, undercover work, motivational coaching, native american culture, ceremonies, medicine man and pipe carrier lend a unique understanding of human nature and its effects on livelihood.
 
Video Skype sessions are available in 30-min or 60-min increments for a nominal fee.  Call for suggested contributions for in-person consultation or inquire about criteria to do ceremony.
