NO LONGER A MATTER OF CONCERN: Gale Revilla
« on: July 13, 2005, 02:02:14 am »
Have any of you heard of her? She makes alot of claims that I feel are unfounded. Claims that Native Americans are wrong on many things including the word  Shaman or Shamanism. Her link is below:

I would very much like to know what you think. She claims that she is correct and our traditions are wrong because the Scientists say so. Thank you for your time.

Other than calling her company the Morning Star, which I find disturbing I'm not even sure where to begin - she sure seems to think highly of herself and sure does not follow the traditional rule to never brag about one's self.  Also does not follow the modesty rule - even her "newsletter" is "adult content" - Seems she has lots to sell - I like the statement that if you haven't bought a CD yet - dp so before you continue ... I could go on for hours about what I see here - but won't - I will leave it at - she has some pearls of facts there - but they seems to be buried in tons of self promotion and her own interpretations

Some of this is so damned bizarre. Dressing up as ancient Egyptian, claiming to be a practicing shaman and ordained minister, and then having cheesecake photos of yourself all over your site, and promising adult ones if you sign up for her newsletter...
She claims to have done an album in Apache, but then you have all these Plains NDN images everywhere, or actually Franklin Mint images of Plains NDNs. I didnt see the part where she claims NDns are all wrong and scientists are right, but it wouldnt surprise me. She seems more extremely conceited than dangerous though.

Sorry, and I do not say this to be mean, but...

am I the only one who thinks Gail looks and sounds like a man pretending to be a woman? A couple of those pics are not Gail.

As for her schedule of concerts, she is so in demand that she has already turned some events down but she is looking for events, large ones, but she is going to do small ones this time so call her with a name for her tour.

Funny not one event listed yet!

under Gail's Apache Heritage are some interesting things.

"We are not Navajo, or Lakota, we are not Cherokee nor Cheyenne. We are not Shishone' nor Commanche. We are the ones that made Native Nations tremble and Governments shake., We are the ones that are known Worldwide through history."


"We are the only Natives who adopted outsiders (Mexicans mostly) as our own. If you lived, breathed and follow Apache beliefs, you could be part of the Band. This is where our dark skin color comes from."

"When the Apache Warrior stood Motionless, they became invisible to the American white man and the Mexicans. Many soldiers of both the American and Mexican Governments have testified to this fact."

What say you Al?  (grin)

I probably smile at that almost as much as a "Shishone" or "Commanche" would...

It´s straight out of Louis Lamour or Zane Grey. Shes making knowing how to camouflage yourself sounds all super-mystical. And fullblood Apaches are darker than most Mexicans. One of my cousins (who is not even fullblood) often gets mistaken for Black.

Im sure the Lumbee and Seminole would be pretty surprised to hear they never adopted outsiders.

Who is Durenda? I have NEVER heard of this person on my reservation? I also feel insulted by this person questioning my credentials and motives. There was a group of people here who were evil, they are now mostly passed on. They had a fake Ghost Dance and desecrated our ancestors and so forth, they did this while slandering me.

Thanks,

I am confused.  Are you saying you are this Gale Revilla person this thread is speaking of?

Revilla's website is down since 2011. Nothing online from her except her recordings. Someone with an identical name passed away. But the obituary lists Revilla as male, not female.

https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/gale-revilla-obituary?pid=179699464

Even if she hasn't passed, she's long been inactive as a fraud. Maybe we should move the thread to Archives.

Hi Educatedindian, someone named Mo from 2005 posted this about Gale Revilla.

"Sorry, and I do not say this to be mean, but...am I the only one who thinks Gail looks and sounds like a man pretending to be a woman? A couple of those pics are not Gail".

They may have been right about this Gale person. Lol. And I believe Gale is the male version of the feminine Gail....something to think about.

We might have two different Gale Revilla's here.

Gale Philip Revilla, passed away at age 71, North Carolina,  https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/gale-revilla-obituary?pid=179699464

Gale Candice Revilla, 62 years old, in Arizona http://galerevilla.blogspot.com/p/about-me.html

On Gale Candice Revilla's Google + "I am retired." https://plus.google.com/+galerevilla?prsrc=5

Concerning Gale Candice Revilla's gender presentation:

Quote
Know that, I am both, male and female and I am neither. It means nothing in the spirit world and where I come from. Only here you make a big stink about males and females and those in between.
