Who are Twisted Hairs?

Originally established around 1250 B.C.,the Twisted Hairs founded the Rattlesnake School of Turtle Island and shortly afterwards the Twisted Hairs Metis Medicine Society Council of Elders. It is a body of shamans, medicine men and women , sorcerers and magicians from many tribes throughout North, Central and South America who have traveled and studied beyond their traditional tribe boundaries and evolved to levels of great learning, wisdom, power and knowledge.

Turtle Island (Americas and Oceania) is called the Southwest Power, the Power of the Dream, one of Eight Great Powers of knowledge and wisdom on the planet. At times this schools had to hide “underground” the teachings and the knowledge to save it from misuses for personal power, religious hierarchies and domination. This happened on Turtle Island following the Spanish conquest by Cortés and Pizarro and the European invasion onto the North American continent.

“There is a river flowing now very fast.  It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.  They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.

“Know the river has its destination.  The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.   And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves.  For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

“The time for the lone wolf is over.  Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary.  All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
