Sequoyah Trueblood (enrolled with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) has contributed selflessly for many years as a role model for healthy leadership, bringing peace and joy to the hearts of many. As a ceremonial pipe carrier he offers something most have never experienced: the genuine guidance of a supportive, profoundly inspired and diversely experienced Elder. His consistent ability to touch wounded hearts and sooth troubled minds with compassion and wisdom has endeared Sequoyah to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people alike. He has a varied background in leadership capacities within Indigenous peoples contexts as well as Western institutions including the U.S. Army, World Bank, Institute of Noetic Sciences, Harvard University Program for Extraordinary Experience Research, and Corrections Canada.

Sequoyah Trueblood speaks candidly of his experiences with the Mamos, or spiritual elders of the high mountains of Colombia. See all 3 parts below:

He was accompanied by James O'Dea, one of the great peacemakers of our time. Together they are present to Sing a revered Mamo back to life, whereupon he blesses Sequoyah with a transmission of Peace in the Heart to carry back to the North and out into the world. The Foundation for Global Humanity is grateful for this opportunity to film Sequoyah at the Shift Retreat at IONS in Northern California in June 2011. With deep respect, we present this sacred story from Sequoyah Trueblood, accompanied by James O'Dea.
