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

The meet ups are led by Grandfather Rick McBride who is mixedblood Tsalagi (Cherokee) who has walked the Red Road for over 30 years. He was named Cante Lute (Schan-tay Lou-tuh) by the spirits through his sundance chief, which means Red Heart. He is a sundancer and has been traditionally trained and authorized to lead ceremonies, such as inipi (purification lodge), prayer with the Canunpah (Pipe), drum healing and so forth. He has been publicly teaching these ways for some ten years now. Workshops and lectures are one way to learn from the wisdom of Indian Country. Ceremony brings this knowledge to life. Combined, teaching and ceremony render practical guidance to everyday living. And so, Rick sees his role as that of "translator" of indigenous ways so that mainstream-educated people get the full benefit of these ways. It has taken him years of dedicated interaction with many Elders, as well as his activities as ceremonial leader to get to this place in his life.

These teachings have had a profoundly positive effect on my life, and I hope you will be able attend a meet up yourself very soon. Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information. We have Meet Ups in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Lake Worth.
