Harley SwiftDeer Reagan is a teacher and healer who has background in philosophy, psychology, religion, martial arts, and ancient mystery school traditions. His martial arts teaching and other subjects mentioned before are taught through Ten-No-Kishi dojo in Scottsdale, Arizona. Harley SwiftDeer Reagan has studied with the “Twisted Hairs,” a collective group of teachers–somewhat of medicine men and women from other tribes in the area.
Personally, his work seems interesting to me because of my Cherokee roots. I’ve always been interested in martial arts and spirituality without religious basis. What Harley SwiftDeer Reagan is doing is really great. I think because it combines the spirituality and thinking of philosophy and religion with the strength of martial arts and Native American tradition, Harley SwiftDeer Reagan’s work is so great.
