She charges for all instructions.
Founded Sunray Meditation Society (New Age Cult).
Claims: 27th Generation Holder of the Ywahoo Cherokee Lineage.
Chief, Green Mountain Band of Eastern Cherokee. Cherokee Pipe Carrier. She claims her Ywahoo lineage was founded by a legendary prophet named The Pale One (which is based on Jesus Christ). She claims she was taught secrets by elders and that she is a Medicine Elder herself. She is a Senior Teacher of Tibetan Buddhist Vajrayana Practices. She can't speak the Cherokee language. If anyone has her new age, Buddist/Hindu/Cherokee book, do yourself a favor and drop kick that book right out your home! That lady is not a Twinkie, really not even New-Age. She is a con artist, a fraud and will take your money (no checks please) and you will be left with nothing of value.
Well, let's see here, WHO IS INVOVLED with Dhyani Ywahoo & Co.?
Nanatasis Bluto or Cheryl Jean Bluto by birth, who married the late Dwight Delvental. She claims to be a Turtle Clan Mother/ Abenaki. She sits as Elder on several Councils in Vermont & Nationally. She shares Abenaki Turtle Clan Moontime Teachings with women. She claims to be Healer who works with herbs, massage therapy, Reiki, & Therapeutic Touch and she is involved with Ceremonies & Counsels people.
Carollee or Carol Lee (nee: Reynolds) Matthews who is a Card Holding member of April St. Francis-Merrill's group up in Swanton, Vermont....is seen dancing in a red dress....in one of these video links where Mike Bastine talks to the crowd.
Alan "Spotted Wolf" Champney is also in one of these video's as well.
Anyone with the ability to do a simply Google.com search regarding "Dhyani Ywahoo" can conclude the woman is a FAKE. Unless of course one is a MORON, can't do the research, or is a Democratic Senator from Chittenden County, Vermont!
Yet, if one is going to support verbally and/ or monetarily a known "false presenter" of Native American alleged Cherokee Pan-Indianism Culture and spiritualistic bullsh** to a bunch of naive stupid and smiling idiotic euro-american's, then of course, supporting false, fake and fraudulant, wannabe Abenakis in Vermont isn't too much of a stretch either I guess, for even a Democratic Senator to do.
I betcha dollars to donuts, these "groups" in these 15 other states had to submit genealogical and historical documentary (before 1900) records showing and proving their connection(s) to Native People's within those particular states BEFORE they recieved official State Recognition.
But again, this whole process was started by thieves and liars who know no shame or guilt in what they do against legitimate Abenaki people!
