Meet the Founders

FireKeepers International is a Native American charitable organization founded by official tribal and cultural ambassadors,  Chief Joseph & Dr. Laralyn RiverWind.

Chief Joseph was appointed by his Tribal Council as a Taino Peace Chief and serves his people as the Ambassador of the Arawak Taino Tribe of Puerto Rico. Dr. Laralyn RiverWind is the Ambassador at Large and an enrolled member of the Georgia Tribe of Eastern Cherokee, a state-recognized tribe. They are both voting members of the National Congress of American Indians in Washington D.C.

Together, they were named "Ambassadors of God" at Israel's Knesset (Parliament) on Jerusalem Day and Israel's Independence Day, 2018. They have since pursued the legacy of their elders in establishing an Indigenous Embassy in Jerusalem.

Chief Joseph RiverWind is an honorably discharged U.S. Army veteran. Dr. Laralyn RiverWind is a Doctor of Naturopathy and Master Herbalist.

Together, they speak, teaching ancient indigenous and biblical knowledge, sharing cultural music, telling traditional stories, preserving old survival skills, and spreading the hope and love of The Creator.

"Love The Creator, Love One Another." Chief CornerStone
