Halito! Chim Achukma?
I am a citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, on the board of directors for the American Indian Movement Chapter of Kentucky & Indiana, and the Chairwoman of The Alliance of Native Americans Seeking Interaction (ProjectTN.com) that is based in Nashville, Tennessee. We boast nearly 200 members and are a forefront grassroots organization for the growing 6,000-10,000 strong Federally Recognized Native American Population of Tennessee.
I am contacting you with regard to the upcoming event with a so-called "Grandmother SilverStar" from Ashland Missouri who alleges Cherokee Heritage. Like Elizabeth Warren, she holds no verifiable citizenship.
I know that she is connected to Loren Zephier, a Lakota Citizen that goes by the name of “Golden Light Eagle”, however that does not justify that she is a shaman, a medicine woman, or anything of the sort. As a side note, traditional medicine people from any nation typically do not charge monetary amounts for their contributions. Cherokees do not refer to women of that status as “Grandmother”. (And I include myself as among Cherokee as I do have verifiable lineage.) And Cherokees – in general – have no reason to tell stories about Iktomi, the Lakota trickster, yet Iktomi is listed on her event flyers as a topic. Iktomi is not part of our Cherokee culture.
The American Indian Movement Chapter of Ohio has had multiple issues with new-age frauds involved with Loren Zephier's "Star Knowledge" in the past regarding how badly trashed the Serpent Mound is left after the “Star Knowledge” people leave the area. And I would hate to encourage those same types of individuals to find refuge in Nashville.
So please consider doing a simple Google search about this woman. She is on the Fraud radar on many fronts.
