Grandfather Stalking Wolf

Stalking Wolf was raised free of the reservations in the mountains of Northern Mexico. Born in the 1870’s during a time of great warfare and violence, he was part of a band of Lipan Apache that never surrendered. He was taught the traditional ways of  his people and became a shaman and a scout. When he was twenty a vision sent him away from his people, and for the next sixty-three years he wandered, seeking teachers and learning the old ways of many native peoples, and others who lived close to the Earth. Stalking Wolf traveled the length and breadth of the Americas, spending time throughout North, Central and South America, following the Creators call. He never held a job, drove a car, lived in a house, paid taxes, or participated in modern society. When he was eighty-three years old, he encountered a small boy gathering fossils in a stream bed. He recognized that boy as the person with whom he would spend his final years, and to whom he would teach all that he knew. That boy was Tom Brown, Jr. Their vision was to ensure the primitive living skills and Earth-based philosophies that had sustained humanity for thousands of years would be passed down and not forgotten in future generations. To learn more, read Tom Brown Jr.’s book, Grandfather, which tells the story of his fascinating life.
