Kwey, Kwey (Hello)! My Indigenous name is Grey Thunderbird. I am a Métis-Algonquin knowledge keeper. I am a descendant of the Kitchizibi. Kitchizibi means, "Great River" which today is known as the Ottawa River. My ancestors lived on the Kitchizibi close to the ancient medicine place of Oiseau (Bird) Rock that is also called "Pinesi-Asin" or Thunderbird Rock. This sacred area remains a spiritual place of power because thunderbird people (medicine people/shamans) still practice traditional ways here.
As a thunderbird I share the traditional knowledge, wisdom and teachings from my Algonquin and Métis (Voyageur) ancestors. I utilize and promote authentic knowledge from Kitchizibi territory such as the "thunderbird nest" and thunderbird medicine ways. Ancient teachings and Ways of Knowing will help you to realize great things on your learning journey of Algonquin Knowledge.
My new book, Quest for the Thunderbird Nest: Returning to Algonquin Spirituality, is the true story of my thunderbird path. It will be published soon and will be ready by the fall of 2018.
