Dedra White Eagle

Dedra White Eagle is an enrolled member of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe located in Durango, Colorado. She has been a “water woman” praying for Native people all over the country for the past nineteen years. Crawford Larry White, Jr. and the White Eagle family, Northern Arapahoe Tribal members, was her point of reference for the sacred teachings of the Native American Church. It was an honor to be married to the road man, praying like two eagles, for the purpose of the meetings. Her continued devotion to the sacred medicine, Peyote, is a testament to her belief in this spiritual connection to the Creator and Turtle Island. Spirituality is the most important aspect of her life and includes; sweat lodge, Sundance, and Roman Catholicism. The Morning Star Conservancy is a priority and working toward the goals of conservation so that medicine will be available for generations to come.
