The Sweet Medicine SunDance Path (SMSD) promotes a spiritual practice that has evolved out of the ancient ways of the Twisted Hairs medicine men and women of Turtle Island (the Americas). Through its world-wide network of teachers, lodges, study groups and affiliated organizations, SMSD offers teachings, lectures, workshops, classes, ceremonial opportunities, publications and learning tools to anyone who seeks knowledge, healing, spiritual self-development and physical mastery.

Our mission is to fight against ignorance, slavery, bigotry, racism, war, disease, dogma and superstition to seed future generations with beauty, power, knowledge and freedom.



Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society

In 1975 after hearing the call of Grandmother Earth and seeing both the need and opening within the collective, the Elders of the Council decided to release some of the Wheels and Keys of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path so that these teachings would be available to anyone seeking personal growth and spiritual awakening. The council designated SwiftDeer as one of the Carriers of the Shields of Knowledge of this Path. So the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society was born.
