OOPS, forgot this bit of vomit:

My name is Don Two Eagles WaterHawk, I am a Tsalagi/Mesquakie native american residing in Florida, USA. The drum that Spirit has chosen
for me to walk with, is a Sengali Warrior Djembe. This drum has become my best friend, my teacher, my church, my door to the spirit world. I am 47 years old, at 40, my life changed when Iunderstood
what the drums were saying and what they could do. They are made of the flesh from trees. These beings, ( we call them, then Standing Ones), Are creatures of spirit, they live in two worlds, the trunks and branches reaching out to our Sky Father, feeling, flowing in the air currents, enjoying the vastness of their lands, and then the roots, the other half of this magnificant being, stretching down into our mother the earth. the skin of the animal is our connection as roamers of this planet, walking our lessons, speaking our truth, and
it is placed on thisancestoral standing one to be given a voice that we could hear and speak. A voice to drum healing, love, desire, spirit. it is a voice to open the door to the other side so when one goes shining, one goes with a clean walk, gently and with pure heart. This church, this tribe, this community is growing, with a strength
unmatched with any previous clan,tribe or community. With that, also comes the responsibility of the drum. and the circle that we speak
with. Wah Do, Four Winds to my brother and sister
drummers.

Don "Two Eagles" Waterhawk is a Native American of Tsalagi/Mesquakie heritage (Cherokee), and a Wolf Clan and Red Feather Clan member.
He has been a student of Native American and Eastern spiritual ways for over 20 years, and
is an artist and creator of spiritual tools.
http://www.rosencomet.com/starwood/1997/STWDXVII_SPEAKERS.4.html
He also has a site called "waterhawk Creations". Has anyone heard of this "plastic Shaman". He is now in SW Fl, via Ohio and Kansas (last I heard) and he's hanging around the SW FL pagans spewing his fakeness.
Thank you,
Respectfully,
Deborah

Tsalagi is not the true name of the Cherokee. And I think , to be perfectly honest, that anyone essentially selling ceremony (as Don and his wife do) and who claims to know that a specific tradition is 2,000 to 3,000 years old  is actually quite a liar. I'm not trying to offend anyone here by saying that, that is just my opinion.
Also while Down Two Eagles Waterhawk says he is of the "Cherokee Nation" he aint exactly forthcoming it seems as to which branch of the Cherokee Nation he belongs to. Is he EBC, UKB, CNO? Or is he an non-enrolled trying to sound like
he is enrolled for the purposes gaining legitimacy for his business?

Subject: [nafps_again] Re: Dance of Life (Trish)

Sorry, dweller, but Nuage people taking Eastern beliefs and dressing them up as Native goes all the way back to Castaneda, who dressed up Tai Chi as "magical passes" supposedly from ancient Mexico.

When Waterhawk told you it was "like Tai Chi" he basically stumbled and practically admitted where he stole it from. I'm hard pressed to name even one single Native ceremony or ritual that has any
resemblance to anything practiced in Asia, unless you want to get extremely general and include, for example, prayer or fasting.

Trish, you're gonna love this. (Or maybe it'll sicken you.) Seems this is one of those dance-around-nekkid ceremonies.
http://www.rosencomet.com/starwood/1998/sw98_speakV-Z.html

Waterhawk also claims it's "centered around the lessons of the owl". I don't know about Cherokees, but traditions like the Apaches regard the owl as an omen of bad luck or disaster.

More reasons to get PO'd at Waterhawk: he says it's mixed together with "German traditions". So is that pagan, viking, Asastru, what?

It also seems Waterhawk learned this dance from the oldtime fraud Ywahoo. Sorry dweller, she's another one that passes off Buddhist practices as Native. She also runs a fake "Cherokee tribe" up in
(believe it or not) Vermont.
http://www.sunray.org/Village/village.html

Rob Schmidt also has it listed on his site in an article "Why Natives Mistrust Pagans" along with many other pseudo NDN rituals. Almost half seem to be claiming to be Cherokee rituals.
www.bluecorncomics.com/ethera.htm

And a site called Choqosh also sells this, right next to "for spiritual warriors in a hurray." Have you heard of this bunch before?

Subject: [nafps_again] Re:Chicken Hawk Re: Sweats

Ummm, Owl, women on their moontime do not usually sweat. Not because of the judeo-christian crap about uncleanliness, but because most of
the people I have met believe that this time is the woman's power time. That power can upset the balance in ceremony. I was also taught that my body is doing it's own ceremony so why would I need another one? My body's own isn't good enough?

Is this guy dangerous? I live by him and he is a real creep, troublemaker and pain in the ass. And quite frankly, he scares me.

Since you're new, you didn't realize these are the archives, for old posts and not for new questions.

We've had reports of Cakerice and his inner circle being threatening or abusive to critics. It's best to be safe, take precautions. There are other threads on him, just use the search function at top.

If you can, could you tell us more about your experience in a new thread? Or contact us by private email if you're worried about threats.
