In this group we learn what is involved in following the Red Road and Native American Lifeways. As such, lectures, workshops, drumming circles, crafts and other events are available that build on each other. These are offerred to anybody who is interested in becoming a better human being and who participates in a respectful way.

If you RSVP for an event, please show up. If you cannot make it, please let us know immediately so another can take your place (we often have wait lists.) Some of the tuition-based presentations now require a deposit, so please study the information carefully. PayPal is set up on the website, link below.

The meet ups are led by Grandfather Rick McBride who is mixedblood Tsalagi (Cherokee.) He was named Cante Lute (Schan-tay Lou-tuh) by the spirits through his sundance chief, which means Red Heart. Grandfather Rick has been actively participating in ceremony for over 30 years. In June of 2016 he completed his 14th sundance in Eagle Butte, SD. He leads local ceremonies, such as drum and prayer circles, inipi (purification lodge) and others. His knowledge comes from actual experience and the direct teachings from a number of traditional elders he has been privileged to associate with over the years.

Rick builds drums. If you have interest in acquiring one of his drums, or you would like to build your own in a 1-on-1 workshop, follow this link to the DRUM PAGE on his website.

Please visit our secure website: 

On the mixedblood website schedule page you will find links to the breakout pages where the details and PayPal are. For a Stone People Medicine reading, please follow this link to the Stone People page.

Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you soon -- be well,

Cante Lute
