David Bearclaw Abrams-- David, of Cherokee descent, was a professional horse trainer for more than 20 years. Throughout his training career, he fostered respectful partnerships with the horses in his care, keeping a small stable so that all of his horses received close personal attention. David was spiritually mentored by a Shoshone Sundance Chief and medicine man. He is a Sundancer, a medicine pipe carrier, and keeps a ceremonial lodge on his small Wyoming ranch. David is an ardent student of Native ritual and ceremony, and has studied with Apache and Lakota teachers. Catholic by birth and early teaching, David seeks the unifying principles in indigenous and Christian traditions. A deep believer in "Mitakuye Oasin (all my relations)," which teaches our oneness with all creation, David lives his life as a prayer, and offers counseling, native dance, sweat lodge ceremonies, and medicine wheel journeys through his organization, "Seekers of the Ancient Ways."
David uses storytelling, prayer, and ceremony to bring listeners to a place of truth. He is currently compiling a book of teaching stories that incorporate Christian and Native tradition. Join David Saturday night for storytelling at our informal concert
