Couldn't find much on ESF, outside of her association with Caney Indian Circle, who we already have a thread on. Basically they're Santeria people who might have distant NDN ancestry who've probably fallen for pseudo-shaman ideas. But ESF looks to be a kid of all of fifteen.

As for "Owl Woman"...

Not since Harley Reagan have I seen such a white looking individual claiming to be NDN.

Joya Pinkham Clark AKA Owl Woman AKA Taravati Joy dabbles in pretty much everything except a real job, freelance writing (just articles for twink publications), photography, web building, and marketing. A marketer who claims to be a medicine woman...what will twinks fall for next?

As "Taravati Joy" (seems to be a Hindu name) she'll "tap into your essential self" for you with someone named Purusha.
http://bodyworkersbyregion.com/results.php?Region=NH-Community&Category=Reiki%20-%20Bodyworkers

(Almost impossible to trace who Purusha actually is, since it's a common name in Hindu traditions.It's both the name of a giant in their lore and the name of a hymn.)

Her biggest claim to fame is writing an essay on the Indigo Children nonsense.
http://www.indigochild.com/authors.html
The others involved in IC are altmedicine people, vitamins, rapid eye therapy, even "angel therapy". Seems to be big in New England for some reason. Most of the authors are from around there, and a Nuage neighbor insisted my niece in Massachusetts was IC.

Problem is, they're educating their kids according to this nonsense, and they endorse the damned Waldorf schools as an alternative.
http://www.indigochild.com/schools.html

"Snowstar Ravenhawk"? LOL! Well, there you have it, another whiter looking individual than even Pinkham.
She "teaches about the Star of David in a healing setup."
http://www.innerjourneyonline.com/events.html

Best tning to be said about is that she's nowhere else to be found on the net.

AnnieE Pow Wow Visitor Oct 2014

White Arrow/ White Eagle
Hello,
This is my first visit here. If you don't mind, I'd like to ask all of you about a visit I had a while back.
In 2004, I went to my very first Powwow in Sharttlesville, PA. I was in search of a Shaman to teach me to heal. I had been feeling this need for some time and hoped that I would find someone to help me onto the right path.
As I walked with my husband, through the powwow, we went into a tent That seemed strange. It was small and had very little merchandise in it. Just a few beaded bags and a few carvings. I picked up one of the stone carvings and fell in love with it immediately! It was a carving of an eagle.
From behind the tent, a man wearing beautiful Chieftain outfit came in. His wife was behind him, as beautiful a couple as I've ever seen!
The man wore a headdress with a grey wolf head and white eagle feathers down to the ground, and stood so strong and sure of himself. I asked him about the eagle, he told me it was hand carved from mud rock. I turned to show my husband, but he was on his way out of the tent. I turned back to the man and told him the eagle was really beautiful, laid it down on the table, and turned to go. He said "wait". And asked for my heart hand. I held my hand out and he put the eagle in it and said "this is a gift from me to you. Take it and go" We looked into each others eyes and I knew that we had known each other for a hundred years!
All that day, he followed me through the powwow. Whenever I would turn around he was there, watching over me. I felt protected, from what I never knew. I sat for the jingle dancers and the competitors for hours, and he was still there. When I finally got up to leave, he was gone.
Soon after, I had the opportunity to take classes and become a Reiki master and for 10 years my little eagle has had a place of honor in my Reiki room. I returned to the Powwow several times through the following years. Bringing gifts and thanks, but could never find anyone who had seen him. I couldn't believe that anyone who had seen him would ever forget him.
Fast forward to this week-end, I went to Health fair and saw a native American Shaman. She did a reading for me and I finally got to ask the question that has been making me crazy for 10 years. Who was this Chief?
She told me that he was White Arrow, sometimes called White Eagle and that he was my guide and protector.
Does anyone know anything about him? She told me he walks between both worlds at will.
I googled the name, but got an actor in Canada. I would be SSSOOOO greatful for any information you might have on him. Thank you!

There are white newagers on the east coast, older people who got into channelling in the 1970s, and some from even older crowds like the racists in the Theosophical society, who believe they "channel" a spirit with this name and description. He's their "Indian Spirit Guide", much like the German hobbyists go on about. It's the usual Noble Savage thing. A bunch of white people who would never hang out with real Indigenous people, listening to a white "channeler" give them "spiritual guidance" in Tontospeak.

A former friend's mother was into that scene in the '70s and '80s. Her family had some heritage, so they were culturally white, but looked very slightly Native. The newagers loved having them as tokens to try to lend some credibility to this stuff. If the thing at the pow wow actually happened, and I doubt it did, I think she either confabulated a brief chat with an over-the-top, flirty merchant and then noticing him later in the crowd, or some creeper was stalking her and her warning signs don't work.

Now that I think about it... this particular figure has been used in the channeling scam for so many decades now, by so many people... I would not be at all surprised if some dude dressed up like the drawings and paintings they've made of "him" and scammed people in person, claiming to be him in the flesh.

"Eagle Skyfire" is Annabelle P Butterworth. According to public records, a prior surname is Alzamora. https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3Aannabelle~%20%2Bsurname%3Abutterworth~

A Pennsylvania corporation search on "Eagle Skyfire" gives her corporation address ( corporation search here: https://www.corporations.pa.gov/search/corpsearch ) Her company is Eagle Skyfire, LLC.

Searching on that address at the Montgomery County, PA assessor website gave me the owner names. (property search here: http://propertyrecords.montcopa.org/pt/forms/htmlframe.aspx?mode=content/home.htm)

Search on name and address gave me a newspaper article about a Halloween haunted house run to raise donated food. Annabelle Butterworth is in full Halloween makeup in photo http://www.montgomerynews.com/northpennlife/news/video-lansdale-haunted-house-raises-funds-for-manna-on-main/article_0bb0ca8d-0d5e-5ea1-8cea-440457bfed02.html

Comparing the Halloween photo with "Eagle Skyfire" photos - I was pretty sure they are the same woman.

That is verified by "Eagle Skyfire" on her Facebook page writing about doing haunted houses at that address.

She has looked for voice acting work in the past https://voice123.com/eagleskyfire

Eagle Skyfire's heritage is from Ecuador, South America. The powers of the Andes Mountains flow through her.

A note on the possible surname of Alzamora for ES/Annabelle Butterworth: public records can inaccurately combine records from several people, including relatives. So I've not verified this as a prior surname for her, it may be that of her mother, or someone else. But the surname is worth keeping in mind while doing further research.

She told me that he was White Arrow, sometimes called White Eagle and that he was my guide and protector.

This is the exact same thing they told my friend when she went to one of those people for a reading.

At the time, she was just an impressionable teenager. She thought maybe one of her mom's friends could help her. With her tiny bit of heritage, and the way she wore her hair, my former friend actually bore a bit of a resemblance to that woman. Just younger and thinner, with straight hair. She's not involved with them anymore; she died.

Arcane arts the focus of weekend festival at Nur Temple Shrine: Practitioners gather to display skills

Quote
Eagle Skyfire, 40, is part Inca Indian and legally changed her name last year. She specializes in reading stone castings to predict the future.

Skyfire, who said she has had psychic abilities since she was 13, lives near Philadelphia, so it didn't come lightly when she offered the Phillies prediction.

"Sorry," she said.

And her weather forecast for today?

"It smells like it's going to be wet here," Skyfire said. "It smells like it's going to be sloppy. It's not going to be frosty like up north. It's going to be more of a mix here."

Returning to the expo is Eagle Skyfire, shaman and priestess of the Caney Circle, the spiritual branch of the Council of Three Rivers Native American Center in Allegheny County.

"This is a very healthy, very safe place," she said of the reason for the annual expo's popularity and diverse crowd that attends each year. "There is no judgement. . . . We are all one family here. . . It's so refreshing."

This quote from a 2005 article cited earlier. I don't see any sign of an actual legal name change.

In 2013 for a traffic legal case, her name is Annabelle P Butterworth. The public record has her birthdate, which matches other public records.

In 2014, the certificate of organization document for her Eagle Skyfire LLC is signed by "Annabelle P Butterworth a.k.a. Eagle Skyfire".
