Chief Elk Man (Hehaka Wicasa) Memorial Page

Chief Elk Man (Sherwyn Zephier) left his body on July 24 2017 at 12:35 am on the new moon surrounded by family in South Dakota. He was 60 years old and had 9 children. He was and is a loving spiritual master as recognized by all who know him.

Now he is a spiritual guide on the other side. His legacy as a art teacher and spiritual leader continue to inspire creativity, joy and love. He was and is an angel of light and love for us all.

He moved to Santa Cruz California to be with his new partner (Narayani) in February 2017. Below is a note from Narayani…

Chief Elk Man was my partner on this earth of 8 and a half months. Some say we are twin flames, other twin rays. All I know is that I loved him deeply and from our union I experienced on this planet being loved in a way I never had before in this life. The night he passed, I went outside and offered tabacco and said a prayer to Creator for guidance and blessings for my beloved’s transition. I was told that he now belongs to all of us. I found my heart open as big as the sky.

Now that he is on the other side, he belongs to all us. He is home with his ancestors, Mother Nature, Our Galaxy and Universe. He is free.

Growing up on the Ihunktowan reservation in South Dakota, life was magical for Sherwyn. Riding horses and playing with his brothers and seeing magic in the land inspired his life. The land is beautiful and the spiritual energy is amazing.

The spirit of the Ihanktwon People is strong. There are those who keep and hold the traditions for all the others and are praying for our world. They are committed to honoring their ancestors and maintaining tradition at all cost amongst all the pain and hardships of the past, present and future.  Chief Elk Man was and IS one of those warriors. As a man, he knew it is his sacred responsibility to teach and share the ways of love and light for the future generations. He was and IS open to serve all of humanity with his spiritual teachings. Now that he is in the spirit world, it will be much easier to share his spiritual light with us all.

He grew up fighting authority to protect his people and in his outrage at the abuse and injustice all around him. Later in life, he was able to find peace through forgiveness. through the ways of sacred ceremony, he was able to let go and move on into a place of steady awareness, unconditional love for all.

He spent the last 8.5 months of his life happy and filled with joy and excitement about the new era we were to live in. He was and is committed to helping bring in the 5th world of peace as prophesied by his people.

Now he is a spiritual guide on the other side. His legacy as a art teacher and spiritual leader continue to inspire creativity, joy and love. He was and is an angel of light and love for us all.
