Deer tribe

Deer tribe – Also known as the Métis Medicine Society. A global organization that promulgates a blend of Native American religious traditions, neo-shamanism, and New Age spirituality through lecture tours, workshops, publications, websites, retreats, and study groups available to “anyone who seeks knowledge, healing, spiritual selfdevelopment and physical mastery.” As a registered nonprofit organization, it seeks tax-deductible donations of money (as well as donations of “time, talents, and energy”) through its website, especially for the construction of a “Spirit House of Beauty.”
