About Us

In 1979 the Thunderbird School of Shamanistic arts was founded by shaman artist, Norval Morrisseau. Developing an inclusive spirit-inspired movement to further explore the shamanistic arts was an ongoing mission that Morrisseau, myself, and our brother-in-spirit, Brian Marion, carried close to our hearts over the years. Though my friends are no longer with us their shamanistic spirits live on.

I have created a "legacy" profile here for them, just as traditionally one would set a ceremonial place at the dinner table for an absent, yet appreciated, loved one.

The Thunderbird School is gifted with the empowering insight and integrity of Heyoka medicine man, Vern Harper (Hereditary Chief Asin) and electrified by the beauty and resonance of the great creative spirit.
