What we're about

The Light Warrior Clan is a Shamanic Teaching Lodge of the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society. The group is founded on the teaching of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path which is an ancient Twisted Hairs tradition weaving together "braids of truth" from tribal peoples across the Americas.

We work with the teachings of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path. Ceremony encourages self-discovery and the integration of our learning as we work with these wheels and keys. It also deepens our connection to the natural and Spirit Worlds of Grandmother Earth. It is through this connection that we strive for balance in all of our aspects and grow into autonomous, free thinking humans.

In 2020 our gatherings and teachings will have a new approach.

We will have monthly Purification Lodges in Holly, MI from April - October (with the exception of August). And beginning in September of 2020 we begin a yearlong Gateway Program.


Monthly in April, May, June, July, Sept, October
There is never any charge for ceremony.


The Sweet Medicine SunDance Path provides an elegantly designed Gateway Process to support the evolution of our Soul. Each of the 15 Gateways include Teachings, Ceremonies and Techniques of Discipline which, when fully engaged, have profound impact for our lives.

We will gather for teachings and to enjoy, support, encourage, and hold one another accountable as we work together to move through the First Gateway.
