With eloquent simplicity, one of the world’s last Native American Medicine Men demonstrates how traditional tribal wisdom can help us maintain spiritual and physical health in today’s world.
Marcellus “Bear Heart” Williams [1918-2008], born in Okemah, Oklahoma was a full-blood spiritual leader of the Muskogee-Creek Nation trained in the traditional ways of his tribe. Highly regarded as a healer and counselor, he was also a respected leader of the Native American Church, Sun Danced with both the Northern and Southern Cheyenne people, and was an ordained minister in the American Baptist Church. He was asked to be one of the spiritual counselors for the fireman and their families after the Oklahoma City tragedy and put down prayers with the Fire Department at Ground Zero in November, 2001. Bear Heart helped thousands of people over the course of his life and his book, “The Wind Is My Mother,” continues his life work of sharing wisdom and inspiration.
