James Uqualla, Havasupi Medicine Man 

Jeva – Healing (Havasupai) Life Mission Statement

"I am a member of the Havasupi Tribe (people of the blue-green waters).

From the Heart of the Grand Canyon, the Havasupai Tribe live in the most beautiful and remote areas of the western Grand Canyon. Supai village is located in Havasu Canyon, which is accessible only by foot, horseback, or helicopter.

Eons of ancestors have brought wisdom and teachings still relevant for the present times and people.

Born into a family with a Medicine Man Grandfather, Arthur Kaska. My mother, the daughter of Kioska, was given the knowledge of the traditional ways—hunts, deer tanning, gourd making, singing and dances, my mother passed these gifts to her children.

The ancestral ways have provided the themes for many speaking engagements. All of life’s events are the reflection of the worlds people at large. They key is to interpret the meanings appropriate to the times and ages.

The ethereal art of Coyote Telling is ages old and performed in tribal settings of canyon, cave, mountain and desert. Ceremonial Theater is the medium of expression.

As a recognized ceremonial entity, spiritual advisor, I am called to officiate unions, birth, blessings and healings. Tools of the spirits, eagle feathers, bones, medicine plants, drums, gourds, fire, water, assist in the needed healings, awakenings and transformations. Some call me a medicine man, sage, storyteller, wisdom keeper and priest.

My journey has blessed me with the divine meetings of spiritual leaders, tribally, nationally and globally. My Sacred Oratory, a lecture, is heard through out Japan, Europe, South America, and the United States.

I invite you to join me in this life of experience. I am your companion in this walk.

Hongio (hun ee gih o) It is Good!
