Mark Stonefish

United States

Mark is from Illinois, in the United States. His ancestral heritage is Choctaw and French, as well a citizen of the Vinyard Indian Settlement, Shawnee/Cherokee of Illinois. He is a pipe keeper of the Gator Clan pipe from Houma Louisiana and is also a member of the Green Corn Dance Grounds in Poarch Creek Alabama. He is a Hobochi, sweat lodge, conductor and offers healings for individuals and couples. At a very young age he was initiated into the Hobichi, Choctaw Sweathouse, and the Native American Church of Mississippi and Montana.

His travels have taken him across the United States learning, dancing, and sitting in ceremony with elders from the tribes of Ojibwe, Dakota, Navajo, Mohawk, Kickapoo, Shawnee, Iroquois and The Muscogee Creek. He has studied herbalism and ancestral technologies of the Americas for over 32 years. In addition to his decades of Traditional Teachings, Mark holds a Masters Degree in Therapeutic Recreation Management from Southern Illinois University.


Mark's approach to wellness and spiritual healing is grounded and practical. He firmly believes we have to “live the medicine wheel.”  The Native American Medicine wheel is based on balancing all areas of our being: the emotional, spiritual, physical and the psychological (mental) states of being. If a person is lacking balance in any area, the other states will need our attention to be realigned. The goal of his practice is to offer his clients direction and advise utilizing traditional native protocols.
