Got a request about him. Surprising we don't already have a thread on him since he's denounced by name by several elders resolutions and a convicted serial con man. That's why i started him off already under Frauds.
Women esp, note that he's convicted of stalking and abusing several females.

in California have exploited the spiritual ceremonies to the extent of being convicted of crimes. Cagle, 49, known as "Windwalker," was convicted on eight felony counts in Yolo County Superior Court in California.
Claiming to be a Northern Cheyenne spiritual leader, Cagle charged hundreds of dollars for sweat lodge ceremonies and "vision quests." He offered Native experiences to children and advertised rites of passage and pipe ceremonies on the Internet. Cagle, who says he is innocent, was convicted of theft by false pretenses, extortion, stalking, embezzlement and other charges.
Susan Bates recently reported in the American Indian Journal a story about a self-proclaimed Northern Cheyenne "Shaman", Nathan Cagle, a.k.a. "Windwalker," who was arrested and convicted in Yolo County California Superior Court on eight felony counts, including grand theft, theft by false pretenses, extortion, stalking, and embezzlement.
According to the Bates report, "Cagle conducted $300 sweat lodge ceremonies and $600 'vision quests' for New Agers and Wannabees who were only too glad to spend the money for an "authentic" Native American Sacred Ceremony. He also offered traditional Native experiences to Girl Scouts and advertised rites of passage programs and pipe ceremonies."

NATHAN CAGLE, PETITIONER,\v.THERESA SCHWARTZ, RESPONDENT.
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with an application for writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner challenges several convictions he sustained in the Superior Court of Yolo County in 2002, on two separate grounds. Respondents filed an answer on December 8, 2004.
After plaintiff was convicted and sentenced in the Superior Court of Yolo County, Petitioner appealed to the California Court of Appeal. Answer, Ex. 1. In its decision affirming petitioner's convictions and sentence, the Court of Appeal summarized the trial court proceedings and the evidence presented at trial as follows:
Defendant Nathan Cagle was convicted on various charges, including embezzlement, grand theft, extortion, and stalking, stemming from his association with two women with whom he had a romantic relationship
. . .
Carol Weinmann owned a stained glass and upholstery shop (Kat's Custom Upholstery) in Woodland, California. She had been in business approximately seven years when defendant entered her shop to look around while he was having his car repaired. They quickly began dating, and soon became intimate.
Defendant told Weinmann he was active in the Native American community. He referred to himself as Windwalker. He did Native American artwork, and made Weinmann a ceremonial Native American wedding dress. He told Weinmann they would grow old together.
Defendant eventually began to do his artwork in Weinmann's shop. Defendant offered to do things to help Weinmann around the shop. She taught defendant how to take bids for her. He did more and more things for her around the shop, and she did things for him as well. They helped each other out, but defendant was not Weinmann's employee.
Defendant was unemployed at the time, so Weinmann loaned defendant money to purchase a car and car stereo
. Defendant only paid back $50 of the approximately $2,040 he owed her for the car and stereo.
In January 1998 defendant opened a car detailing business next to Weinmann's shop. Weinmann purchased the business license and the first stock of supplies for defendant. Defendant's shop and Weinmann's were connected by a metal roll top door that could be locked only from defendant's side. Weinmann's shop was protected by an alarm. Weinmann gave defendant the access code to the alarm.
After defendant opened his business he did not spend as much time at Weinmann's shop, although he continued to help her out. She also helped him by detailing cars with him.
Defendant started making significant business decisions for Weinmann's business, even though she did not give him permission to do so. Around March 1998, defendant took an order for an upholstering job from Willibaldo Rodriguez. Defendant quoted Rodriguez $537.94 for the job, but only charged Rodriguez $300. Weinmann and her employees did the upholstery work. Defendant gave Weinmann $200 and told her Rodriguez would pay the rest later. Rodriguez paid the remaining $100, but Weinmann never received it.
In another incident Weinmann prepared an estimate for work to be done on a boat by James Canady. Defendant gave the bid to Canady, but Weinmann did the work. The bid was for $2,970.93.
Canady paid $500 up front and tendered a gift certificate for $200.
Weinmann only received $2,170.93 of the remaining $2,270.93, even though Canady paid the full amount.
In another incident Polly Nelson came to Weinmann to repair the broken stained glass on her front door. Nelson contracted separately with defendant to remove and re-install the door. Weinmann quoted Nelson $1,435 to do the glass work, with the understanding she would be paid by Nelson's insurance company. Weinmann never received the money from the insurance company. The insurance company sent the checks for Weinmann's work to defendant and defendant cashed them. The checks were made out to "Nathan Deon, Doing Business as Kat's Custom Upholstery," and "Nathan Deon, Doing Business as Kat's Stained Glass[.]" Defendant told the claims adjuster the drafts should be made out to him because he owned the business.
On March 13, 1998, Weinmann discovered defendant had received an e-mail from a woman named Caroline, indicating defendant had spent the previous evening with Caroline. Weinmann confronted defendant and "told him to pack up his beads and feathers and leave." Weinmann had the locks and the alarm code changed in her shop.
Weinmann felt she needed to get away so she went to Clear Lake for the weekend. When she returned to her shop on Monday, she found defendant in her shop. He bragged to her that he had convinced the police and the alarm company he was supposed to be there
. Defendant told Weinmann if she wanted him out of her life, "then I am going to sue you. I'm going to ruin you in this town. I'm going to see my attorney. . . . Oh, by the way, how much fire insurance do you have on this place?" He then demanded she put him on her payroll and paid [sic] him $400 per week until June 10, 1998.
After this incident Weinmann started to notice money was missing from the shop
. To test defendant, she put a check in her desk drawer, and when she came in the next morning the check was gone. She stopped payment on the check. A few days later, on June 10, defendant told her he could not work for her anymore.
On June 12, 1998, defendant sent Weinmann a letter demanding $10,400.
Weinmann turned the letter over to the police. Defendant called Weinmann twice demanding the money. Defendant began following Weinmann around town.
He gave her "evil" looks and glared at her. She felt threatened by him and did not believe her encounters with him occurred by chance. She also began receiving hang-up phone calls
. Finally, in September she got a restraining order against defendant.
Weinmann's property started disappearing during the time defendant was in her life, and she stopped noticing property was missing after he was gone. She made a list of items he took. The total value of the missing items was $11,455.88.
Brenda Klein met defendant in June 1998. They soon began dating and became intimate. On July 31, 1998, defendant called Klein and told her he was being arrested for violation of probation. Klein loaned defendant $3,200 to hire an attorney
. She also allowed him to stay with her to avoid going to jail. She accepted third party custody of him, and he lived with her for a period of about nine weeks.
Klein had her own business selling credit card equipment and debit machines. Klein hired defendant as an independent contractor in her business because he needed a job for probation. Defendant charged Klein for some business cards without her permission. Klein also agreed to co-sign a contract for defendant to get a cellular phone. She later found out the phone bill was in her name. Klein paid approximately $2,000 for defendant's phone charges.
Klein noticed things like tools, jewelry, and coins turned up missing while defendant was staying with her. Klein estimated the missing items had a value of around $1,159.
The jury convicted defendant of embezzlement
based on the money defendant took from Weinmann on the Rodriguez, Canady, and Nelson jobs. He was convicted of check fraud based on possession of one of the checks from Nelson's insurance company.
He was convicted of two counts of grand theft based on the personal property taken from Weinmann and Klein.
He was found guilty of diversion of construction funds based on the Nelson job
. The jury found him guilty of one count of extortion based on his demand to be on Weinmann's
payroll, and guilty of stalking against Weinmann
. He was found guilty of two counts of grand theft by false pretenses, one against Weinmann and one against Klein
The jury found defendant not guilty of extortion of the $10,400 from Weinmann. The jury was unable to reach a verdict on one count of check fraud and the burglary charge.
The trial court sentenced defendant to a total of nine years in prison
B. Prior Convictions
Petitioner's second claim concerns evidence presented at trial indicating petitioner had several prior convictions....
The prosecutor made a motion to impeach defendant's hearsay statements pursuant to People v. Jaccobs (2000) 78 Cal.App.4th 1444, hereinafter Jacobs. The trial court granted the motion and read a stipulation to the jury that defendant had been convicted of five felonies: "1975, transportation of a controlled substance; 1986, theft; 1990 theft; 1996, forgery; 1996, sale of migratory bird parts."
The trial court further instructed the information was not to be used as evidence of defendant's propensity to commit crimes, but for the purpose of attempting to impeach defendant's credibility regarding his own statements....
And what's very disturbing, he's out and selling himself as an expert in curing vets' PTSD.http://www.linkedin.com/pub/nathan-%22windwalker%22-cagle/16/7a5/a49
