Johnny Moses is a Tulalip Native American raised in the remote Nuu-chah-nulth village of Ohiat on the west coast of Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada. He was raised in the traditional ways by his grandparents and sent by his elders to share their teachings with all people. Johnny is a master-storyteller, oral historian, traditional healer and respected spiritual leader. His traditional name is Whis.stem.men.knee (Walking Medicine Robe). Fluent in eight Native languages, and carrier of the Si.Si.Wiss (sacred breath, sacred life) medicine teachings and healing ceremonies, Johnny Moses shares the knowledge and richness of Pacific Northwest Coastal cultural and spiritual traditions. In listening to Johnny Moses share, we hear the whispers of his grandparents as he brings to life the tales he weaves. Johnny is uniquely gifted in that in addition to the stories relayed to him by his grandparents, he can spiritually pick up the threads of the old stories – those that were woven by the grandparents of long ago, and which linger in the etheric fields.

OMEC is working with O-Books to publish the story, The Medicine Clothes that Look at the People, to be released in 2020. Videos and downloadable audio collections of Johnny Moses's storytelling as he shares through English, interwoven with ancient dialect and hand gesture language, as in the old ways, are also being produced. You may purchase the "Prophecy Story" at the store link at the top of this page.

Synopsis
An ancient epic of the United States Pacific Northwest Coast Samish people, transcribed from a live event delivered by spiritual teacher and healer, Johnny Moses, whose traditional name is Whis.stem.men.knee, 'Walking Medicine Robe'. Johnny, a Tulalip Native American, master storyteller and oral historian, carries the Si.Si.Wiss, 'Sacred Breath, Sacred Life' teachings of his peoples. Here, he shares the story of a woman who wears beautiful Medicine Clothes. The woman wears different kinds of clothes when she visits the many different medicine people she is going to get help from, or those she will help.

'…Since the beginning of our culture, the First People (Native Americans) have maintained our tradition of storytelling. This was the primary tool for passing on information, for educating, for teaching the philosophy of our culture, for encouraging memory, for highlighting our humor, for focusing on our most talented historians. Johnny Moses brings to this generation the combined gifts of the best of our ancestors...To my knowledge, Johnny is the only individual gifted to relate these ancient stories. He was selected by his elders to listen and to remember each story and their accompanying songs.' Vi Hilbert, Skagit name: Taq.Se.Blu
